We had a Post-Production meeting this week for The Balcony. The Production Manager called it a "Post Mortem", which is fitting in a way:
it's a production I've been thinking about for well over a year.
A week of auditions and callbacks.
Many design and production meetings.
4 weeks of rehearsal.
5 days of tech in the theatre.
And now, the production is a memory.
So, it feels like a loss of some sort.
What we do is very brief and ephemeral.
It was all over before we all knew it, there is little record of it, and only a handful people were able to see the show.
But it will still remain one of the best experiences I've had so far, working on a play.
I feel very grateful.
I was able to procure production photos.
