Tech Show #3 The Descent

Tech for #3 begins with the losing of a musical cue, which makes it easier for everybody in the band. Still something of a shame as the transition from Paul Simon's "Graceland" to Elvis Presley's "A Little Less Conversation" (or whatever that's called) was both stunning in its execution and apt for the pieces involved.

Kate Jaeger is going from cue to cue to cover the tech hurdles her piece calls for. As they happen, here's what needs to be covered:

- Actors need to hug the chairs as they walk through the audience.
- Can the harp sound like a sitar? Is that possible?
- We need to make Donna Summer's "Love to Love You, Baby" even more sexual.
- The last moment of the piece features Ryan Higgins tasting Bobby Temple's forehead.

Once this is done, it's determined that they have enough time to try to run it. Puns aplenty, the tripping over the correct middle name to put after the first name "John", finding a man in a boat, and a band member muttering "it's so true."

And they nearly get to the end, before it's time to run the transition into show #4.
