Rehearsal #6 - Beyond The Rain
Seems like the direct references to The Wizard of Oz in the evening has been kept to a minimum. La Chris Jordan's Beyond the Rain offers a very loose re-telling as a separate reality within the reality of the piece.
As I stepped in to observe rehearsals, the group was in the process of finalizing the blocking, discussing several options for a particular moment...In other words, establishing the basic rules of the world they're creating.
In that world, John Bartley shares some big news with Becky Poole, who reacts by escaping to her own little world, which is also inhabited by Michelle Chiachiere...Any further details would spoil the fun, so it would really behoove you to come see the show tonight.
As I leave, this group presses on.
