We're called Gondolieri

We all look like tramps.

I mean that in the nicest way though. Tonight was the Gondoliers dress rehearsal, and it was the first time everyone was in full make-up and costume, and wow, the female chorus is trash. In the best way possible.

Everyone was a little on edge for tonight's run because it's our only full run-thru in the theatre before we have an audience. The set has large stairs everywhere that make it difficult to move quietly or smoothly. They're supposed to be marble but they're actually plywood. Shh, don't tell.

A lot of minor things went wrong. Before the show tomorrow, we're re-blocking the major dance number because it looked too squishy.

Squishy, squishy, squishy.

I shouldn't blog when I'm tired. Excuse me as I go scrape off my tramp make-up.
