Yesterday was our first run through of Quilters. We have not rehearsed together since June (early July?), but a few hardy souls (myself included) had impromptu rehearsals in the interim.
I’ve been pretty worried about this production, but was pleasantly surprised yesterday – people were on the ball. Some of the principals were already off-book, and most were comfortable with both lines and music. The director and AD had done a lot of work on blocking and props. There was only occasional anguish about diverging from the stage directions. This play might be moderately decent after all.
