The thing about Children of Eden is that this is a very props-intensive show. The first part of Act I involves moving lots of foliage on stage very quickly so as to create the Garden of Eden. And even then, it's not static: stuff gets shifted around all the time. And there are two scene changes - one in Act I and another in Act II - that also require certain items to be brought on and taken off. Those alone have taken significant time to consider and then re-consider how to best do it. One of these is something that I've been assigned to, and if you know anything about Children of Eden, you'll know what I mean when I say that it's possibly the most mysterious part of the story.
So Sunday was our first tech rehearsal. It ran from 2 p.m. until past 9 p.m. that night.
Last night we did it again, practice starting at 6:30 p.m. and then running to about 11.
Tonight was our first full dress rehearsal. We began going through the show at around 7:30 p.m., and finished just after 10:30. Almost average for a typical production of Children of Eden. We have definitely come a long way since where we were just two days ago.
Tomorrow we'll be taking pictures and maybe shooting some video. I can't post any video, but I will certainly try to have a pic or two up of what this is looking like, including me in my getup as Seth :-)
