I know, I sound like your mother, but…

The main entrée in the cafeteria is a Vietnamese sandwich. Like many sandwiches, Vietnamese origin or not, it is finger food. If you don’t wash your hands and then remain mindful about not touching common surfaces and door handles after, these sandwiches will be magic carpets for colds and flus. Hand sanitizer doesn’t cut it! Be good to yourselves.

Great work/week ahead

First of all, great work today. We gave some very strong performances and learned a lot about where we need to go in the next week.

Tomorrow, we are going to be focusing on act two. We are going to try to do it twice, looking carefully at what works and what can work even better.

Today, a number of people had questions about specifics within the show. If you have specific questions or insights that could help us make this the best show possible, we need to hear them by rehearsal tomorrow.

Anything involving music needs to go to Ms. Johnson at If it involves acting and blocking, send it to me at

Between now and tomorrow, especially if you have numbers where you are singing to a specific person, please really look at why your songs and lyrics are in the show. What part of the story is being told? What do the characters want? How are they responding to what they hear, based on their own agendas?

I’ll be working a lot on those. If I can help with specifics you have on your mind, let me know. If I can work on SOS tomorrow during C and “take a chance“ during a, that would really put us ahead. Let me know.

Rest, enjoy the evening, and thank you again for the hard work!
