August 3 2013

Daily Stuff: Ah the drama of drama. Final In The Heights preview today and we had to have the understudy for the leading lady go on.

We had a little notice yesterday that one of our principles might be late getting to the show today, so we put her understudy on standby. But then today with just a few hours before the show, we got word that she was not going to be able to do the show tonight.

Luckily her understudy had taken her job seriously and was prepared. The "official" understudy rehearsals don't occur until next week.

What saved us was that all of the female lead tracks are pretty isolated, so she didn't have to do too much interaction with the whole company. The hardest sequence was the Club, but Spencer was able to just be a strong "lead" and get her through it. And Jai (the male lead) is a rock.

Apart from that... we took another look at the last duet between the two other leads (Benny and Nina) and we returned some of the urgency and discovery that had been missing.

Tomorrow is opening!
