Friday Free-For-All – 04/03/15


This will be my first Friday night off since January! Because rehearsals have been going so well recently, the artistic team decided to give us the night off before we move into the big theater this weekend and go into crazy, rehearsal every night mode. I can’t even tell you how excited I am to just GO HOME after work tonight and hang out. I’m going to put my PJs on immediately and veg out all night. Yay! Speaking of rehearsals…

This weekend kicks offย “Hell Week.” In the theater world, the week before a show opens is officially known as Tech Week. This is when you add all the technical elements like costumes, lighting, sound etc to the performance. It’s a LOT of work–lots of late nights, frayed tempers, and frustration. This causes it to be known unofficially as “Hell Week.” I don’t anticipate getting much sleep next week. And workouts? Ha! I’ll be lucky if I have time to eat.

It’s warm today! In the mid-fifties! Kind of sunny!ย Hopefully this will melt the remaining snow and really kick spring off. Of course, it’s supposed to be cold again this weekend, sooo…

What have you got planned for the weekend?

How’s the weather where you are?

    YAY for a Friday evening off!! Enjoy vegging out! ๐Ÿ˜€ It’s supposed to get up to *70* in Boston today, and it was supposed to rain all day, but the forecast says no rain (although it looks a helluva lot like rain out right now….) and I am so happy. Spring at last!

    Oh boy, definitely enjoy your night off! Your description of tech week reminds me of high school when my friends who did theatre would be MIA the week before a show- frustrating but FUN, from what I heard!!
    This weekend, I’m racing! 6.5 miles at the Chicago Quarter Marathon! I’ve also got a few family gatherings for the Easter holiday, so lots of relaxing/eating, too :0) And the weather is very Chicago-y for spring. It was in the 70’s on Wednesday, 60’s yesterday, but is supposed to snow tonight?! Aye caramba!

    Oh how well I remember Hell Week! i still have nightmares of trying like hell to figure out why that ONE DAMN SPOTLIGHT KEEPS BLOWING UP THE ENTIRE LIGHT BOARD. (shudders in fear)…. Enjoy the calm before the storm my dear. And no box wine. Or I’ll have to kick you. HARD. XOXO

    Good luck with Hell Week. My question is: will they make you dress up in costume and do ridiculous things while you are dogged tired?
    Oh, right ๐Ÿ˜‰

    To Hell Week! I have vague memories of Hell Week. They involved the Austrian Waltz, a very slippery stage and a broken zipper. Let’s hope yours is better. And does not include a damn waltz. CHEERS LADY!!!!
