Tech Transition Number Two. Next Up: Play Three, On the Outs

Running in Circles, while I hadn't the opportunity to see it in its entirety (the guys are jumping from cue to cue), gives a strong impression kindred to Albee's Three Tall Women. Without giving too much away, it's a look at dynamics between old and young, and so the natures of growth, experience, loss, gain, decay.

The blocking is sensitive to the script, playing with this concept of circles and things revolving. The costuming too is tastefully attentive to the writing, consistent with a clear and powerful theme, underscoring it.

Now here comes the rehearsal transition into Banham's On the Outs, our play number three.

A swell of music. Lights rise...
