Rikki Tikki Tavi Build: Day 3

Not much visual movement on the set today. There's a new all on the left of this photo, and the rear masking on that central unit went into place. There was some movement off stage, things that will be put in place tomorrow.

Tonight was the actors' first day on stage. Because they use the stage as a rehearsal space this show has been rehearsing on the set for the previous show, which was radically different. In a show like this, that is mostly fight choreography and stylized dance this adjustment period is critical. The actors get to see the real challenges they are facing, and start to iron out whether they are going to be able to do what they thought they were going to be able to do. I don't know how many times I've gotten to this stage only to hear an actor say something like "Wow, this wall is taller than I thought." Or, "I thought I was going to be able to step through this area, but there's a bench here!"

My contribution tonight was mostly sitting in the dressing room and sewing curtains and pillows. I have 50 yards of crushed gold and red silk to get shaped into curtains!
