The actors and creative team have cleared out of our West Berkeley rehearsal hall, moving up to the Bruns for the beginning of tech. So, no more Danny Scheie rolling around on roller skates, practicing the trombone.
What am I talking about, you ask? Oh, just you wait and see. For a hint or three, listen to the just-posted podcast of Twelfth Night director (and Cal Shakes Associate Artist) Mark Rucker outline his vision on the first day of rehearsal last month. If video’s what you prefer, early next week I’ll post a highlight reel from the Inside Scoop, the panel discussion that took place last Monday in Orinda, featuring Rucker, dramaturg Cathleen Sheehan, and actors Alex Morf (Viola/Sebastian) and Dana Green (Olivia).
But in the meantime, enjoy the podcast.
