4-5 all I care about is love
6-7:30 me and my baby
Rehearse all dance in order
Fix choreography TBA
Wednesday and Thursday
We need to add a Saturday rehearsal next week. This is very important, and we are lucky that Kim has canceled plans to be available. This was always in a vague “to be determined“ category. But I really appreciate your flexibility on this. We are very close to opening, and this will make a major difference.
It will be from 11-3. Full company. Thank you so much for your help with this. Enjoy the rest of the break!
October 2 (Monday): 5.30-finish…. sound tech. Incredibly important. You have no idea. Please be there. If you have some conflict you’ve told me about, tell me again. If it is in ANY way negotiable, negotiate. This is potentially one of our most important rehearsals, if not THE most important, second only to final dress. Seriously.
October 3 (Tuesday): 5.30-7:15 “All I Care About” and 7:15-8 “Me and My Baby”
October 4 (Wednesday) and October 5 (Thursday): 4-6 Clean up missing dramatic blocking. Full cast, although bring homework, laptop, and headphones.
I need to see:
We will probably be out by about 530 or 6.
Please review all of your spoken dialogue and be ready to make strong choices with it. We will just be working dialogue today, but prepare as much as you can.

To avoid anymore confusion, here’s a list of all the characters called for each number in Chicago. This should clear some things up!
Happy Sunday! I hope everyone is enjoying this lovely day. Remember, if you see that we are doing a number, and that number has dialogue in it that may involve your character, we are probably doing more than just the music. In fact, I can guarantee that we are doing, or attempting to do, the scene that goes in and out of that song. Although it seems like we have a lot of time, we really don’t. And every moment is precious. If you were ever unclear about whether or not you are needed, you should probably come anyway. But if you do have a question, contact Mr. McCray directly.
