Report, 10/11/08

Present: Dale, Marc, Greg, Dan, John, Jeff B

We worked through Act III twice, and it’s shaping up to be the exciting political thriller we’ve been telling people it is. It all boils down to having one’s lines memorized, doesn’t it?

Michael Dean, our Martius Jr, came to watch. He played young Patrick in Auntie Mame back in the production that actually gave Lacuna its start. He’s now a freshman in high school and will be with us next Saturday to do his one line.

Here are the cuts and assignments we made today:

  • III.1: Jeff A, play all Senators, Patricians, etc.; Scott, play People/Plebians/Citizens; Dale will play the Aedile
  • III.1: CUT lines 246-253
  • III.2: Jeff A, play Senator
  • III.3: Dale plays the Aedile; Jeff A, Scott, play plebeians/people
  • III.3: CUT from COMINIUS: Hear me, my masters… to ALL: It shall be so!
  • IV.1: CUT
  • IV.3: CUT
  • IV.5: Scott, play the THIRD SERVINGMAN
  • IV.5: plan on condensing the ending “comedy” scene
  • IV.6: Who’s playing the messengers in the “café scene”?
  • V.4: CUT
  • V.5: Scott, play SENATOR
  • V.6: Scott, play SECOND LORD

We’re stepping up our schedule these last two weeks:

  • Monday, October 13: 6:30!!!!, in the park, Acts IV and V.
  • Tuesday, October 14, 6:30, in the park, whatever we decide on Monday night, but I’m thinking we need to run Acts I & II.
  • Wednesday, October 15, 7:00, dance studio, “Menenius Night,” i.e., all of Menenius’ scenes
