The Last Rehearsal

A great last rehearsal is a sign of a great show; a terrible last rehearsal is the sign of a great show.

I think our rehearsal fell somewhere in the middle.

But actually, I think we've got a good show here, and there were a enough big flubs that I'm pretty confident tomorrow will go well. Today was fun, and it felt like everyone was getting a good handle on their roles. Now I'm tired and have to get up early tomorrow so that I can be at least half-awake by the time I get to Tamworth.
