Down To The Wire
An intense week for run throughs of Florodora but the result is a great sounding, funny show. The cast has found their characters and the fun, silly character of the Florodora. The orchestra and the new orchestrations sound great and we have been working on lights and other production elements. I've been very very lucky to get such a great cast and orchestra and crew.
People genuinely seem to like Florodora. It is understandable - it was written to be a very popular, appealing, mass-market show with, to mis-quote Anthony Tweedlepunch, "bumps of operetta, music hall and variety that stand out like watermelons". Whats not to like?
Both shows are approaching sold out houses. The buzz is very good. Light the lights! Here comes Florodora.
(I honestly don't know what I'm going to do with myself next week. Oh, yeah, that "day job"...)
