The In-Between Time

Daniel Arreola, Morgan Rowe, and Lisa Viertel rehearsing for PLAY TWO: Taxi by Dawson Nichols, directed by Tyrone Brown.

The time is 2:39pm. The directors' meeting is in 21 minutes. The first performance is in 5 hours, 21 minutes.

Once again, we have arrived at that strange part of the day, right after lunch, just before the directors meet where no one knows exactly what to do. Here in the Bullitt Cabaret where I have presently positioned myself, Tyrone Brown (like most directors right now, I'm sure) is struggling with how best to use the little time remaining. What to do? Run the play? Work the lines? Try on costumes? So many things need to get done.

And why is it so dark in here?
