Late AM, New York
Note to self: The score and the script HAVE to have the same lyrics! When there is a discrepancy you can just watch the next 10 minutes of your rehearsal dribble away.
Our Liz, Gia Mora, just got here. She doesn’t play the diva at all. I’m so glad that she has this part. We had a chance to go over the music back in Washington. Her ability to learn a LOT of music quickly is just amazing to me. But this room is filled with people who make their livings by being able to do just that. Fred Berman is able to hear any part and remember it. Matt Bogart, same.
There are a few new faces that I have not met yet. Steven Skybell is playing Mank. I’ve not met him yet. Looking forward to that. In our last reading we had Brad Oscar play that role. He was pretty damn amazing. Looking forward to Steven’s take on that character.
