Had a dream that my real dad got in touch with me during show week? I mean, it was my dad, but I guess we hadn’t talked since I was a kid. Also my director was heavily featured. Not as my dad, just so we’re clear.
So I was on a bit of a Spring Awakening kick last night and started fantasy-costuming our cast. Spring Awakening costumes are my favourite and I’ve always wanted to help out on the costuming for this show. I collected some picture, sketched a couple of things out etc.
Anyway, today at rehearsal I asked our director what was happening with the costumes (he works at a costume shop nearby and I’ve helped the owner costume a couple of other shows with theatre companies he’s worked with)
He said he wasn’t sure yet, and he was trying to work out what to do with the adult women in particular (bc he wanted us in period dress, but also in the chorus between scenes, and big-ass petticoats and bustles aren’t conducive to jumping around a stage) I suggested pulling a ‘reverse Wendla’, having us in period underwear so we could swap out a period jacket and long skirt for a lighter dress, as the cast will be onstage for the whole show, so we wouldn’t be able to go change in a dressing room.
At that point my friend came up and asked if she could help out with hair, and long story short Sophie and I are organising the costumes, hair and makeup for the show and I am excited as shit
It’s the year 2050. The heterosexuals have long been extinct from modern society. They kept writing really contrived plots about heterosexuality being outlawed and everyone was too overcome with secondhand embarrassment to be straight anymore
look what you can buy
There is a Pope in the Cars universe. This means that there is Catholic Christianity, which means there was a Jesus car who was crucified. Jesus Chrysler was crucified by car Romans under Pontiac Pilot who washed his wheels. A car was nailed to a cross and ascended to Heaven.
there are people in the world that haven’t watched side by side by susan blackwell and that makes me sad
