Monday, February 25th

No word from me for a couple of weeks as there hasn't been a lot to say. Rehearsals proceed on 'Into the Woods'. We have one more week before tech. The show should be good but we need to have some time with everyone there to get some of the moments down. So much of it is ensemble and when you're missing three principals from every scene on any given night, it's tough to get it right, especially with the difficulties in the music with all the individual lines that have to be timed properly.

Much consternation at work by upper management over the state of clinical programs. All I have to say is that's what you get when you ignore them steadily for years in favor of trying to be a top research university.

The house is down to the last few projects. I spent the last couple of weekends sorting out all the books and getting them up on the new shelves. Still have a lot to do in terms of getting the art back up, cleaning the basement for it to be rehabbed and getting the old furniture we're not going to use out of the house and off to the Playhouse for use as props.

I skipped the Oscarcast last night. From what I hear, it was pretty tepid. Haven't seen most of the nominated films anyway. Tommy and I have too many theatrical and singing extra-curriculars to get to the movies much.
