Waking up around 11 a.m.


Oatmeal with Cinnamon, Blueberries, and Almond Milk. English Breakfast Tea.


Packing up some things in the car and driving out to the Kroc Center for the big Broadway dress rehearsal today. There’s much to do with all the backstage hands including myself, Rebecca, Reid, Carol, Haley, and all the cast members that come trickling in one at a time.


A lot of time is spent setting the props in specific places and marking spots on the stage where things will live. I focus on setting up Reid and I’s station for calling the sound/light cues. Then, putting batteries in all the mic packs and laying them out. It takes quite a long time to clip the packs on each cast member and tape up their mics. Then, setting up all the cameras.


PB&J. Crackers. Coffee.


At some point we actually do a run through and it goes over quite well – there’s always a few hiccups but it’s good we’re making mistakes tonight before the shows this weekend. It’s a highly stressful but exciting environment to be in.


Afterwards, we clean things up and reflect on all the things we need to fix before tomorrow.


Back home. Ana cooked a hearty dinner: Lentil and Bean Soup with Veggies and Quinoa with Garlic Bread.


I work on this footage from today at the same time doing chores – laundry and dishes.
