Frozen Logic and Everyone in Wigs: Wednesday 7th December

Today I didn’t have to go into work until this evening’s performance of ‘Route 99’, and so I spent a delightful afternoon window shopping in bookstores, managing to convince myself that I really didn’t need to buy anymore books until I had read all of the one’s on my bookshelf, and then buying them anyway. Unfortunately I arrived at the theatre a little before the doors were due to open, and as I had no gloves with me I ended up wandering around a local supermarket for 15 minutes to kill time. My logic being that it was far more appropriate to be wondering amiably through a nearby frozen foods section than it would have been to pace around a warm theatre foyer, logic at which my hands were far from happy about.


When I finally got into the warmth of the auditorium, and the play began, I was surprised to see that even more changes to the blocking had been made since yesterday, in addition to which everyone now appeared to be wearing wigs! Even though I was hardly involved in the artistic side of the rehearsals, I still felt a certain amount of trepidation in watching tonight’s performance, as I have got to know quite a few of the cast members over the past few weeks. A few missed lines aside though everyone did a fantastic job, and surprisingly (given the amount of times I have now seen this production) the 3 1/2 hours seemed to fly by, probably because each scene was only performed the once.
