Man. I'm bushed. Anyone who's ever put up a show knows that feeling. And then the emotional aspect of putting something up you've worked on for a decade is pretty heavy, too. It's taken me a full two weeks to finally be able to write about it.
First off, to have the kind of support we did for this project was extraordinary. The Cast - first rate (thanks to my wife and Rory!). The tech aspects - best sound in a 99 seat show. Kudos to Gary Grantham and to Sloe -just amazing. The running crew/SM's - Bobby, Mercedes, Mitch, Crystal...way to go! And of course to our Director - Darin putting it all together, keeping us afloat. Brad Ellis who is my savior as a composer - amazing. And Jason Weiss - who came up with the crazy idea of putting us in his theatre...wouldn't have happened without that phone call. Our designers - Brad and Angela and Brandon, who realized vague ideas and made them concrete. And our GM/Producers - putting all this together.
All these people.
Dedicated to making some art together.
We built audience size and buzz as the run went out - every week we had more peeps seeing it, more buzz generating, more theatre mavens coming by and supporting our work. Truly lovely to see this community get behind an independent production like ours.
So. Now what?
We need to move the show to it's next venue - a LORT house or SPT contract or something along those lines - maybe a workshop leading into rehearsal and performance...
It's all up in the air right now.
But I'll keep you updated as things start to shake out.
Thank you all for your kindness, your generosity, and your support of The Devil You Know...
