Radium Girls, the focus of literally all my non-work time at present, opens one week from today, and I couldn’t be more excited.
I can’t wait for the world to see this piece that myself and a dozen other people have poured our hearts and souls into for months now.
From the first moment I read the script, I knew it was a special project, and we’ve had such good fortune all along the way so far, I expect great things to come. We’ve had the involvement of the playwright (DW Gregory rocks!), an amazing audition process which led to our seriously stunning cast, an energetic and excited production team, and enough lucky breaks and good times to last a lifetime so far.
At present, we’re beginning to put the finishing touches on the show and shining it up for all the world to see. This is the part where directors get to be picky. Like, silly picky. Like.. “I like Diane’s hair, but.. can it be curlier?” or ” Can you drop the coat ON ‘Radithor’ – Not after the word?” It’s a fun place to be.
I’m also terribly excited for the tech part of the process to begin. It’s a show about Radium. Which glowed in the dark. That’s all I’m saying.
I think it’ll be a lovely show.
You should all come see for yourselves.
