Whew! Almost at the end of the first week of rehearsal and my head is already spinning! In a good, thought provoking way – not in a weird, Linda Blair, gross-me-out way.
So many new and talented people to meet and learn about and so much radiant beauty from the director I’m blinded! Ha! Can’t wait to win some Smarties tonight (wishful thinking!) and delve into the rest of the play. Soon…walking about as I learn my blocking. Used to hate blocking, but it will be a welcome break from all this character work! Oh, that’s right, there is no break from character work! <SIGH>.
So, what’s your take on Gertrude marrying Claudius so soon after her husband’s death?
