Tonight we staged our opening number for ESTHER and the Secrets in the King's Court. With almost 90 people on stage, staging this number is sort of like a troop movement. It would have been great if we could have put up a tall ladder in the middle of the floor so that our director Toby Klein Greenwald could see how all this action looked from afar.
First the gymnasts flew across the stage. Then the Cool Kids. The Persian Dudes. Etc. etc.
Ninety women and children coming from every direction toward every direction. It was big!!
We did it about ten times, changing little things every step of the way.
And while we moved, WE SANG!! Ya know how difficult it is to sing and dance at the same time?
For that reason alone, everyone should run to see this show. :)
