We had an interesting landmark in our evolution towards opening night of Best Little Whorehouse in Texas - we did a full run through, choreographed the bows (because, yes, there is more dancing! yay!) and completed our very last rehearsal in the rehearsal space. Sunday we load into the theater, do our sit-sing, then we'll just have to run, run, run the show from top to bottom til we're ready to open. I'm really happy with where we all are. Most of our costumes and hair pieces are in, everything is choreographed and blocked, and everyone is off book. Sure, there were a few forgotten lines here and there last night, but that's the beauty of live theater. :-) I'm so excited about getting into the actual theater so we can really understand where our entrances and exists are, and we'll have so much more space! I helped base paint some of the sets last week, and I have a feeling that Stephen Watham is going to outdo himself again!
We're opening April 19. Make sure you get your tickets now! Actors Theatre Center performs in the historic Hoover Middle School theater in San Jose (right across from the Egyptian museum). It's a short run, and you definitely don't wan to miss out.
