There's more than smoke in the air this month as we gear up for our production of "See Jane Quit"! As the director of the show, I can tell you three things:
1) Our cast is a dream to watch and work with;
2) Our assistant director has the comic instincts of a savant; and
3) Our script is superbly smart and sweetly snarky, just like its author!
We are getting such a collective charge out of finding all the goodies hidden in this play amongst the rich characters, witty dialogue, and clever plot...I can't remember when directing a show has ever been this F.U.N.
Add to that the privilege and pleasure of having a REAL SET for once, one that's been expertly designed by Richart Schug, a Jackson newcomer who's been working at New Stage this past year, as well as freelance designing for Millsaps. Incidentally, we need to give a shout-out of thanks to New Stage Theatre for hosting us again in The Warehouse Theatre space--we could not possibly do this show without them--as well as to Mad Genius for donating their mad design skills to our print and publicity materials.
We've still got a couple of weeks to go before opening night, but knowing that it only gets better from here on out, one thing is certain: you are going to LOVE it!
