| Is this a dagger?; Final phases - 1/14/08
Today Aaron and I sat with Jeremy and Matt over lunch for 2.5 hours discussing improvements
we’d like to make this week. There are a zillion technical particulars to refine, and that
will be a fulltime job over the next few days of previews.
Today’s particular task was to make the dagger apparition work in a more surefire, precise way.
In the live theater we’re not dealing with mass production; we’re dealing with precision hand-work,
craft and art, not machine production. Every show is a walk across a tightrope and we need to make
that happen nightly and certainly.
So those of you who are seeing previews please be prepared to cheer us on. This is still a work in progress.
Be a little understanding if an apparition stutters. They’re still learning to appear.
