After the dress and before we re-open…
Posted by: lighthouse on: 01 Feb, 2012
Afternoon, I hope this finds you well. I’m fine thank you for asking, I’m in that strange place after
a dress run, where you feel like you’ve done the job already but know you have to go through it all again later.
It’ll be nice to run the show in front of an audience after a couple of months away,
I’m hoping I’ll remember to get rid of the porter and give Lady Mac the right cue halfway through act 1,
my only excuse is that I had a new bit of business to think about in the scene aaaaaand ok,
that’s a really really lame excuse. Well, it’s what dress rehearsals are for, fingers crossed I’ll remember
the new stuff… especially the new moves in the sword fight, now that’s a scary thought!
The Angel Exit folk returned triumphant from Weymouth after another well received ‘Secret garden’ last night,
they’ll be back at The Lighthouse in April, do come along. That’s in April though, tonight until Friday you can enjoy
‘One of the clearest Macbeth’s in terms of story telling I have seen’ according to Michael Goron who is a drama lecturer
at Winchester University so he must know what he’s talking about.
The Stage said ‘Director Simon Plumridge uses minimal props and stark lighting to give precedence to the power of the text.
The famous speeches take centre stage, their language mesmerising’, which is nice.
I took a few photos during the dress run (hmmmm, perhaps that’s why my mind wandered) so I’ll pop a few on here
as soon as I work out how, until then, I know you’ll be thinking ‘toi toi toi and break a leg’ for tonight,
thank you muchly, I’ll do my best and let you know how it went tommorow,
