Last week one of my duties during rehearsal was cat-sitting Sam Newport’s cat, Gaby. She is making her stage debut in Angels in America as Little Sheba! Anyway, Kristen (my fellow catsitter) and I left the room for about a minute, made sure she didn’t get out when we left, and came back to find her nowhere in the drafting studio! We panicked and started looking all over the basement of CFA including platform storage, the bathrooms and dressing rooms, and the green room. I went to Sam and told her, so she rushed back to the drafting studio and lo and behold, Gaby had cinched herself under a shelf that Sam had tried to block off. She had been there the entire time and nearly given us all a heart attack.
Other than that, things have been going swell! The technical elements of this show are absolutely astounding and apparently is the biggest spectacle Knox has ever put on! I watched parts of the tech run-throughs the other day and I could not stop flipping out at how cool everything was! So get excited!
