Tech #1, The Queen Anne Justice League

Getting started a couple minutes behind schedule, tech begins with Louis Broome's, "The Queen Anne Justice League." There's a lot of initial focus on a short choreographed fight sequence, and on coordinating said sequence with the 14/48 band, which makes some non-musical contributions to it. The fight sufficiently gone over, the cast goes on to complete a promising stumble-through of the play in its entirety.

"Justice League" portrays a dysfunctional, euphemism-happy 'crime-fighting league' on a mission to "make Queen Anne more homogenous." The ensemble finishes their run-through with a minute remaining on the clock, putting the 14/48 tech bender back on schedule. Funny fumbling superheroes come through.
