Everyone arrived safe and sound. The 27 company members got off the plane more than an hour late. They were a little bleary-eyed and it was raining as we loaded ourselves and our gear onto the two Tommy Tooters’ buses.
It was right to the theatre for most of them. We had three shifts of people working with the lighting on the stage, while the other kids went back to their flats to get settled in. One toilet wasn’t working, one flat was missing a microwave; but the flats are nice and comfortable.
Tonight we will be working our tech rehearsal from 11 p.m. to 2 a.m. We begin right after a show called — are you ready — “Puppetry of the Penis.” Yep. This show has played all over the world and is a smash hit in every language. Actually, there is not much to say. It’s more of a visual show.
Anyway, we are here and working hard.
