I’ve got other responsibilities today. I spent much of the morning spending time with my 106-year-old mother in-law. We spent time leafing through family picture albums recalling holidays, travels, and stories.
I’m struck with how emotional these recollections are for each of us. I don’t recognize some of the faces in the pictures but that doesn’t mean they are irrelevant to me while I listen closely to the inflections of each story. And this may be the key for the audience; I’m looking for ways that people can spark their own memories and emotions.
Heading back to the press release and the script while I keep the 2/27 repertoire in mind. I will ultimately have to make more decisions in the next 48 hours and then to finalize repertoire, personnel, rehearsal schedules, and production details. And I need a draft of the press release in 24 hours!
