A Lovely Error...
...somehow posting this blog to Facebook. Hmmm....I wonder if Rusty stepped on the keyboard and hit the right combination of things with his furry feet...but thank you John and Danny for being so kind :-) So I know there are two readers out there. Hoping your day today is as beautiful as you are, both J and D and whoever else might be checking in :-)
I had a rehearsal yesterday with my scene partner for my next class for Masters Scene Study. We're doing The Butcher of Baraboo, a wickedly funny did-someone-get-killed-and-by-whom-and-who's-really-the-father dark, hilarious, well-written comedy. I'm playing the butcher and was afraid to bring a meat cleaver into class, not wanting to scare anyone with its menace, so I went to my fab thrift store down the street and found a reasonable facsimile. My scene partner and I talked about props -- I really like to keep things to a minimum unless they're essential, and in this play, the meat cleaver feels like another character in the play. It has its own life and says so much with its presence always on stage, so I do think it important to have something there. And I use it, so it's not just taking up space. I always think that's fascinating writing when an inanimate object is as important as the characters and speaks volumes without saying a word.
Oooh, but it's a rainy and gloomy day today....maybe it's sunny where you are :-) If it's not, here's a bit of sunshine to brighten your day -- my mom's current cat, Sunshine :-) She looks a bit like Rusty, though Rusty is more orange and has longer hair. I think they'd get along....
