Burn, Baby, Burn

Midway on life's journey, I found myself
On stage, the right line lost. To tell
about last night is hard--so tangled and rough...

(with apologies to both Dante and Robert Pinsky)

Last night's rehearsal was from hell. Production staff pissing contests, freak outs, hissy fits, the whole nine. On top of that we had to have EMS come and take a cast member to the emergency room. Truly, exhausting on any number of levels. How will tonight go?

Oh my. Sounds like a rehearsal from Hell alright. I hope the cast member is OK. Panic? or exhaustion?

Peter--She's all right.

It was a mix of dehydration and working herself into a lather. Lines had been reassigned at rehearsals she missed and she worked herself into a tizzy. She was well enough last night to threaten us with quitting the show if she didn't get her way.
