Consider this -- about a quarter of Miracle Worker rehearsals were canceled. Why? No need to rehearse! All is well! Everything is going great!
Okay, the mother of Helen Keller (in real life) is a hair bit anxious about the fact that her child gets only, like under 3 full weeks, of rehearsals to prepare. And the understudy? That poor child just got thrown into the mix last night. Heaven forbid of anything happen to Scarlett.
These theatre folk live dangerously. On the edge. Banking on one child's performance, health and well-being -- Scarlett's. The Matron has Instruction from Theatre in her Inbox: no illness, no broken limb, no hair cut, no tattoos or piercings, no worries. She's doing her best, all fronts.
Today introduces the beginning of the real deal: tech week. Previews start on Thursday and Opening Night? One week from today.
Break a leg, Scarlett!
Weanie post, but the Matron and her family are off to Grandpa Don's funeral. The blog has been thin, reflecting the state of the matronly Nerve. Better days ahead.
