Boyack Report.... Out of the frying Pan and into the Fire

So much has happened in the past two weeks.  I'm keeping up... just barely.  First of all, Secret Garden moved from the downtown rehearsal space to the theater.  Our first day in the theater we all worked at helping build on the set.  The second day we were able to re-work dances.  We were done in record time... 8:50pm.
The set matched the model well so we didn't have to do too much re-blocking.  That was a relief.  They many problem seemed to be in getting used to stair that were all different heights.
