It's Begining to Look a Lot Like Tech Week....

Went out for sushi with Kathy last night. She was upset that he boyfriend's flight back from visiting his family was delayed, both by outward circumstances and an inability to figure out travel plans. They thought he was going to be home at 6:30 so they could have a nice quiet night together, poor Scott won't be seen until after Midnight. So....we went to try Rock and Roll Sushi that just opened down the street. I really liked the tempura roll, but they were kind of stingy in portions for what we paid and they didn't offer soup or rice to go with things.

After that, I was a little late getting to Cyrano's to tech Santaland Diaries. Between those 10 minutes and realizing we had to spike the set of The Heiress before we could do anything? Off to a bad start. Tech for a 1 hour show took over 5. Poor Rob didn't even get to rehearse tonight, it was just Don and I fighting over sound levels. There are more than 40 cues in this show, some of them going something to the effect of 'voice over on player B, start carol on player A immediately, pause B, cue up next voice over, turn down sound on A, play B, raise sound on A, pause, cue, play B, change tracks on A while B is playing, start A.' This will be brown trousers time.
Tonight, The Heiress starts playing again and I have more Santaland afterward, so it should be fun!
