Man is free in his imagination, but bound by his reason.

End of week one.

And I still have all my limbs intact, as well as my sanity. I know the work will only get tougher, but so far I’m having a blast! The work is heavy, and each time we have class with Leo we realize just how difficult he is going to be on us. He pushes, and pushes, and pushes and sets his expectations high and makes you leap and bound, and somersault to reach them but when you do – hell, it feels awesome.

Rehearsals are still going completely smoothly. Even though we’re all still shaky on lines, it’s not unusual when the whole script is a monologue, and not dialogue. It’s going to be hilarious. For those people who don’t mind compeltely politically incorrect pieces of theatre.

A kind of awful synopsis of Product:

‘I love your work, I love it. I’ve seen you do those turns on a sixpence….You’re fabulous. And this material is going to be fabulous once it’s punched up.”Amy is a hot young starlet. Now all she needs is the script which will save her from B movie hell. A script which balances artistic integrity with blockbuster bucks. We think we have  got the perfect pitch – a script which combines a torrid love story with the dark spectre of terrorism and big, big explosions. If we can only persuade Amy, we’ve got the perfect Product.”

Not very clear. And the play is much more hysterical, dark, and twisted than the synopsis makes it sound.

Apart from classes, I haven’t ventured out. I’ve made plans to go to Cork, Ireland Feb. 11th, to see Carly and Ireland, but until then I’m not sure what I’ll be doing. Just prepping for Product and all my classes.

Tonight – we are hosting a mixer for all the new kids, and veterans who have stayed on so we can all get to know one another.
