We knew we were special...

Hello all,

Michael here.

I've taken it upon myself to write our very first rehearsal blog post, a tradition we'd like to keep up over the next two months as we prepare to stage <3...So here I am. It's 2:00 in the morning (a mere 3 hours after our first rehearsal) and I find myself listening to music (F&F, obviously) and thinking back on what we learned tonight....

As we read through the script I was taken by a sense of accomplishment. I smirked a few times, remembering moments from the last few months as we developed this script (i.e., perpetually reoccurring ringtones). And I looked forward to finding new ways expand on the material, and to incorporate new ideas, designs and technologies to help us tell this story.

This sense of accomplishment was accompanied, however, by an eye-opening realization of exactly what's ahead of us! We have just over two months to mount an incredibly ambitious project that will require a lot from all of us.

That being said, I have never had more faith in a group of individuals, and have never been prouder to be a member of the BSTC. Let's make some theatre.




    if you want a preview of James's ringtone in the play... check out the link above! Quicktime required I think.


    Seriously, someone pulled this ring out in one of our early development sessions and it became the catch-all ring, like everyone in the world has a Brush Off Your Shoulders ringtone. If only it were true.
