Theatre on Thursday: Diagnosis

For the past few days I have been trying to track down a phantom problem.  It is only phantom in the fact that I can’t reproduce the problem outside of the show.  That, I suppose, makes it definable is an intermittent problem.  This of course, is the most difficult of problems to diagnose and to solve.  Certainly a very frustrating problem. What is the problem?  Well, I have a moving light that seems to intermittently decide to just quit....

Theatre on Thursday: Bad habits

I find that when we get deep into production, my eating habits get tossed aside.  It is possibly worse for my wallet than for me as I still try to eat decent foods, but no matter how you spin it, it isn’t the best of habits.  I like to cook and I like home-made food, but I often find myself on a schedule that doesn’t leave me enough time to go home and make something.  I also often end up needing to eat at odd times due to when I...

Thursdays on Theatre

Our production of 42nd Street opens tomorrow.  That marks the final opening night of the 2009-2010 season here at the theatre.  It is really amazing how it feels like we just started, and yet we have been at it for almost nine months.  As usual, the weeks leading up to this opening (like this week) have been completely chaotic.  I think by the time the curtain falls on Friday night and we head out to the opening night party I will have clocked...

42˚40’N 70˚37’W

If you don’t know the significance of the title then you should read Our Town. I mentioned in an earlier post that last week and this week would be kind of crazy and of course they are!  I didn’t really even have a full day off.  While I did find the time to hit the slopes for a little bit on Sunday, I still had the photo call for The Rocky Horror Show and then I had to move a couple lighting fixtures from that show up to our...

Theatre Thursday

Seeing as I work in theatre, it seems only logical to have a day to blog about what is going on in the theatre world. Since the theatre world is my world it follows that often times this may turn out to really be a kind of weekly wrap up of my life in the theatre. Hopefully I will find a way to make it not always just about me (but in the end it always is anyway, right?). This week we have been focusing for our upcoming production of Twelve...
