Well, we’ve (mostly) struck everything for the show I was just working on, and I’m currently waiting to go in to a read-through for the NEXT thing I’m working on. It never ends, does it? But I wouldn’t want it to.
I’m glad it went out on a relatively high note. It’s always hard to close a show, because you have so much invested in it and this one had a short run, but I’m excited to move on to new pastures. The new show, called Static, has the same director, one of the same collaborators, and one of the same actors as the one that just finished up, so it’ll be a somewhat similar experience, but changing scripts and people always creates some new, interesting relationships.
I just felt really pleased by everyone’s work, including my own. Putting in a lot of hard work and seeing an amazing product emerge can be its own reward, and even if no one recognizes what you do (and they do, don’t get me wrong), it’s just nice to know that you were there to help create an environment where people could make their art. It gives me the warm fuzzies.
My schedule from January onward is going to be psycho, but I’ll get through it older and wiser, right? (And possibly a little less sane, but that happens sometimes)
