Spurge and Anais here, long time no see
Basically, we just needed the hype of interim to die down before we could gather our thoughts and make a blog. This was our second interim, but the first without half of our department aka friends. A slew of people went to Italy, and after a while, something felt like it was missing. Needless to say, we were glad to have them back. However, we were so busy that I don't think we realized just how much we missed them until we saw them again. We're so used to having that constant support group. Regardless of what show we're doing and who's in it, we're always an ensemble. I stage managed Marry Me A Little, so I had the privilege of watching Our Town. I was more than excited to see how talented the people I work with on a daily basis are. We don't have to be nervous about our performances; we know we're going to put on a good show. I will admit, though, it was a little surreal to see a BSC performance from an audience's point-of-view.
It's Anais's turn...
As Spurge previously stated, sorry for the wait on this profound blog you are currently reading. Interim...where do I start? I think we were all a bit curious to see just how working on and building for two shows would play out. There is something so beautiful about the simplicity that is Our Town. In short, I think we all made connections and discoveries of characters that we grew depths from. It was an experience. Brent really helped our dialect work. From something that we first all felt quite silly doing, it became second nature in weeks. There were days that were more overwhelming than others. As usual, time flew, and before we knew it our friends had all returned, the sets were being striked, and we were all, regardless of where we were, walking away from January having learned a bit more to add to our journey.
