Since our Countess is still en route to Louisiana, we jumped into staging the first scenes this evening. We have a very short rehearsal process, so there is no time to lose. We covered a lot of ground tonight, and I look to tomorrow's musical rehearsals and the amazing Act II finale!
The first cut is the deepest, according to Cat Stevens, anyway. It's good to have broken the ice. Onward.
PS- the food here is amazing.
