We have done two performances of Future Guidance, and today we are doing our six hour Break Up. Audiences in Future Guidance have been really warm and generous and I hope to post some of their notes here soon. Joel and I are alternating performance roles on this tour, which keeps us on our toes, and it's a challenge to step from being a director/stage manager to being a performer and back again. We have this cool pre-show checklist which is page long, so before each show I get to pretend to be a pirate. Did I type pirate? I meant pilot.
Went walking before the first Future Guidance up to the East Village past the Flatiron building, which I love, on up to the Empire State, which is very boring close up. Super pleased to be spending so much time around the Village since its less tourist and commercial focused than further north.
After the second show last night we walked back to the subway in the snow, and stopped off at a German style bar and watched some college basketball- March Madness. Duke won, which is Bad For Kentucky. Karah told me there's a big rivalry between Duke and Kentucky because ages ago someone from Duke did something really awesome and its never been forgiven, which I find really funny. Boo Duke.
We've had a good time meeting again and talking though this next break up, setting some new goals and talking about all the feedback we've had so far. It's going to be very different again, though I don't know in what way.
I'm going to trudge down to the donut place and get a special Break Up Day donut. Maybe that cafe au lait one that's been eyeing me up this past week.
