By George, I Think She's Got It ...

Just when you think things can't get any worse ... well, the clouds break, the sun shines bright, flowers bloom, and all the little children rush out of their houses and start singing happy songs from Annie.

Last night's rehearsal for Menagerie was a turning point. It has to have been. Suddenly, the actors seemed secure and assured. They rolled - with the punches, with each other, even roughshod over the lines when they had to to get to where they needed to be.

It started to move and flow.

They lightened up and played with each other, playfully, spontaneously. It was impossible not to watch them with closely with expectations of the next surprise.

We will have a show.

Now, if I can only finish up my prop-shopping list.
