Keeping it Fresh

Most people who don't do theatre have a very common question: how do you do the same thing every night and keep it the audience and yourself?

What you may not realize is that often you get all the way to Opening Night with some things still being really fresh.

"Ragtime" is a huge show, and it's telling multiple story lines with different groups of cast member involved with each story line. Those story lines do intersect, but most rehearsals are breaking the cast into different groups working on different things.

When we get to run-throughs and dress rehearsals, lots of the cast will be seeing lots of the show as though for the first time themselves.

And that is one way (and there are others we'll talk about some other time) that it stays fresh!
