A Very Big Undertaking


"'Cause it's a very big,
Very fraught,
Simple but it's not,
It's a very big undertaking ..."
William Finn

DAY 320:  Who would've guessed that an epic two-and-a-half-hour musical tragedy with a thirty-person cast on a HUGE set would be "easier" in many ways than a TINY, nine-person, hour-and-fifteen-minute musical comedy being played on a stage no bigger than most living rooms? 

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee gives new meaning to "deceptively simple."  I'm grateful, though, that we seem to be in great shape two-and-a-half weeks out from opening.  The second act is STILL a little rocky, but what IS working is working VERY well and I have no doubt the rest of it will, too, after SIX run-throughs next week!
