Monday, March 10th

Between tech week last week, performances this weekend and the time change, I'm still pooped despite as much sleep as I could get. The pace doesn't slow down for a while. As I look at the calendar, it's all systems go through mid May, then things get much more quiet with really nothing in the works after mid June.

'Into the Woods' got on its feet and runs for another weekend. The show is decent, anchored by some very good performances. The audiences have been quite good sized and the word of mouth is good so we should sell some tickets. The review in the local paper was very kind to the performers, but lambasted some of the technical aspects, especially sound. It's what happens when you have aging equipment and a shoestring budget. I'll post some photos when I have some.

Much consternation still going on at work in regards to Joint Commission accreditation issues on the outpatient side. Our area is in the clear. The administration is going to have to put some resources into clinical care over research to fix certain inherent problems elsewhere in the system.

Tommy was in 'Tosca' this past weekend as a priest. By all accounts a great production, but I could not see it as it ran opposite ITW. He now goes into rehearsal for a concert version of 'Porgy and Bess'. I have to learn a whole bunch of tap routines for the Time Step studio annual tap extravaganza in April.

Birmingham Festival Theatre is doing a reading at the end of the month of 'Terrorist in the Family Room', that script of mine that's been kicking around for a couple of decades. I hope it's the first step towards a possible production.
