Tech show #3, Wesely K. Andrew's "And Nothing Too"

Three stools. Three mic stands. Brian Faker is going minimalist.

This play is obviously set to a rhythm. Faker guides the cast and band in tandem. There are lights not working and microphones needed. Veteran actor Brandon Whitehead takes the reigns and walks the cast through the opening. There seems to be a lot more people in the audience and are told to hush multiple times. People are antsy.

Faker and Belyea discuss what lights are needed, what needs to go, and both agree that, as always, 'Less is More'.

Five minutes... Final decisions are made... Microphone levels are set... The next play has moved into the house... aaaaaaaaannnnnnnnndddddd.... an extra valuable 30 seconds... aaaaaaaaannnnnnnnddddddd.... TIME!!
