Wow, I cannot believe it's just over four weeks since I 'came out' to you guys and had my script reading!
The script reading went incredibly well - far better than I could ever have hoped for. By and large, everyone loved it. People were actually laughing at the funny bits! I was secretly hoping they would find it funny but preparing myself for everyone to snigger in disbelief and walk out.
It was incredibly hard sitting up there in front of a very tough crowd asking for comments on my work but I'm very, very glad I did because the feedback I received was absolutely invaluable. Someone actually said that it reminded him of the film 'The Artist'! I nearly fell off my seat!
Unfortunately almost the very next day, I launched into production - yup, 15 hour days, six days a week - for a show which, quite frankly, the less said about the better. I won't name names but really, technical preparation and simple good manners takes you a long way. This did mean that I was emotionally drained & physically exhausted by the time I got home every night and I couldn't find the time or the head space to work on the feedback I'd received. The show from hell is over now and it's looking like October will be a little slower so I'm hoping that I'll be able to get back in the zone.
