Mostly I just listened - and made a few notes along the lines of, "Don't forget sink! Ask about candles - real or electric?" and "Hides behind piano - how?" (My best such note ever, from a Designer Run rather than a Reading was: "Can't watch eyeball eating!!!" No kidding.)

Sometimes designers are invited to the First Read, sometimes not - most directors are glad to have designers visit anytime. Last night, not only were designers there, there were both of the artistic directors and a few board members, which is a little unusual (Kitchen Dog often is). We were celebrating: First Read Through of the first play of the new season!
