All in all, this was a good show for us, and I enjoyed it thoroughly. I grew. I played some sustained notes I've not played (in a sustained way) before. I also found much greater physical ease. This was the right show at the time with the right director and right actors.

"Orphans" Third Night
... and final night (these short academic runs are weird.) Energy off. I was missing my 'top notes,' though the show played. We didn't work quite as well as an ensemble tonight. I felt as if each actor was taking care of himself more than taking care of the show. But, I also think this is natural for a second or third night. If we'd had a longer run--even another weekend--we'd have passed through that mercenary feeling quickly enough.
