storm before the calm

4/22/04

We just had the last performance of “Naked TV” before the Fox Executive and Celebrity Night shindig tomorrow night, and I’ve been subtly trying to calm my actors down and not freak them out before the Powers That Be come to judge them. I don’t know why so much importance has been placed on this one performance (out of sixteen), since our future could be equally determined by some silent, powerful creature slipping into one of the other nights. But everyone’s casts, not just mine, has worked themselves up into a fine froth, so maybe that energy will be channeled positively.

I mean, what else can I think? Not much either Geoff or I can do about it now. We wrote and directed it, but the show belongs to them now. It is pretty exciting
