Squaring The Circle: Angels Rehearsal

A glimpse into our first weekend of rehearsals: the first block-through of the Act Two split scene with our two disintegrating couples -- Harper (Shannon Maddox) and Joe (Patrick Kilpatrick), and Louis (Richard Goldberg) and Prior (Don Mullins). You can see spatially how little room we have to play with in Spotlighters Theatre. (The purple chairs represent the first row of audience seats.) The intimacy, however, has helped us to make more creative choices than we might have otherwise, resulting in (I think) a more resilient and provocative production.

The entire show is now blocked; soon, we start coloring in the dramatic frame with nuance, complexity, sophistication and energy. It really FEELS like a painting sometimes, to be working on this show...which is why I probably find myself gravitating towards visual metaphors. Thank God it's not Sunday in the Park with George, or I'd never shut up.
