Dress Rehearsal

Today is Cue-to-Cue for In the Next Room, when the light and sound designers and the stage crew - who move scenery or make it snow - practice all their parts, timing them to the actors' work.  Set Designers (who, inevitably just want to paint stuff) are mostly in the way.

But this evening is Dress Rehearsal, when the actors, in full costume (mostly), run through the entire show without all the morning's interruptions.  It's a chance to see what the whole production looks and sounds like, and what the timing is like.  The set designer needs to be there, taking reams of notes, and making a punch-list of To-Do items... to finally get this sucker finished!
