Watched a run though of Rough Magic last night and I have to tell you it was good. There are some things that will need to be ironed out before opening. The set still needs to be finished and there are props that are still be perfected. Costumes are still be sown and lights and sound are still finding out exactly where they need to live to maximize their dramatic and comedic effect. Some of the actors are still finding where their light is and who their characters have the potential to be.
All that being said, I had a BLAST! There were some moments where I literally was laughing so hard I could not breath. The cast has discovered nooks and crannies of Roberto's script that will have all of you speechless. There have been many attempts to bring a comic book world to life on screen, but the attempts to do it on stage have been few and far between. This is something special and I want you all to come and see the work that all of the designers, directors and actors have done to bring Rough Magic to life.
Pay-What-You-Can Previews start tonight and continue until Friday night. You don't need a reservation, just show up at the door. I have amassed a bunch of stuff to share with you as we near opening and I encourage you all to pick-up the Express on your way to work tomorrow because there will be an article on Rough Magic and a fantastic color photo.
See you all real soon.
