Second stumble-through

Today is the second time we ran the whole show for all of the designers (set, costume, etc.) involved in this project.

We began with a warm-up with all of the actors in the cast. This is to warm-up both our bodies and voices in preparation for the show.

Then, there was a fight call, supervised by the fight choreographer, Bill Lengfelder (who teaches Movement at SMU). This involved going through all of the fights in the play, making sure they ran smoothly. Then, we did a quick focus exercise before we ran the whole show.

It was such an interesting experience to witness all of the separate components of the show start to come together. Tomorrow, we will be doing scenework, breaking down scenes from specific acts.
