Yesterday was our first day on the set of the The Full Monty.
Everybody was a little giddy with excitement. Up to this point we have
been rehearsing in a rehearsal space with the stage dimensions
and levels defined with various colors of tape on the floor; a lot of
imagination was required to make our surroundings real. Going to a
larger space and more exciting playing field makes the Monty
experience more real. What becomes more real? The fast approaching
opening night date September 17th. Yikes! As well as making the world
of The Full Monty, Buffalo New York, 1992, a living breathing place to
While we have been rehearsing, the crew have built this amazing set
that has a spiral staircase, stage components that move, and so much
more! (I don’t want to give too much away. ) Opening night, the actors
may get the applause, but the real respect goes to the crew and the
director, stage managers and all the folks that coordinate thiswonderful playground for the actors!
