Happy New Year!

by:  Todd Williams at 12/31/2009

I'm in the office, watching it snow, and I'm in absolutely no mood to get any work done.

The cast for All My Sons is onstage for a spacing rehearsal, the costume shop is abuzz with the usual frenzy of getting ready for dress rehearsals next week, and there a couple of staff working on personal projects in the shop. There are a handful of folks getting some work done in our very quiet admin offices, and a few box officers will be manning the phones until 6PM.

After celebrating the New Year tonight we will slowly wind ourselves back into the post holiday real world; on Friday the company will continue rehearsals, on Saturday the lights will be focused onstage while there is a final run through in the rehearsal hall, and on Sunday we begin our 6 day tech period, culminating in a preview performance a week from tomorrow on Friday, Jan 8th.

But right now - it's pretty quiet. 

Things at Arena Stage are not quite so calm. Our friends in Washington DC have been hard at work over the holidays (and snowstorms) building and rehearsing Stick Fly, which we'll bring to the Wimberly in February. They have their final dress tonight, and first preview tomorrow, and will open on Thursday the 7th (just as we have our final dress).

Arena has a lot of great info on their blog which I'll bring to you in a few weeks after All My Sons opens. We wish them well - and in honor of the final Stick Fly dress and first preview - here is director Kenny Leon talking about the play:
