Tech starts tomorrow and I'm done with the first draft of the sound design for all four shows. Whew! Each of these shows got bigger w/r/t sound design as they went on. Probably due to the fact that they're sharing sets and lights, sound and costumes become chief ways to create distinct worlds for the pieces.
It's just a life story, so there's no climax. No more new territory, so pull away the IMAX. In the slot that you sliced through the scene there was no shyness. In the plot that you passed through your teeth there was no pity. No fade in: film begins on a kid in the big city. And no cut to a costly parade that's for him only. No dissolve to a sliver of grey - that's his new lady, where she glows just like grain on the flickering pane of some great movie. (Hey, I'd watch it.)
