- Tighten up the fights (and suicides) with Calvin, our fight coach;
- Confirm the bulk of our sound design with Phil;
- Approve a few lighting arrangements with Roy and Janine (since I happened to be in the theatre while they were testing washes);
- Talk hair with Sue, and costumes with Melissa and Geri;
The danger now is loss of focus -- not just for the actors, either, but for me. We need to stay focused on our goal, and on our timeline. I need to be able to decide when to stop nit-picking and making adjustments, when to step back and let the momentum of the show carry us through to opening night. If I had to make a guess, I'm thinking my last chance to be a finicky director will be Thursday (another run). After that, it's sailing -- and whether it's clear or bumpy, it doesn't matter. There ain't no oars.
