We are three weeks into rehearsals for this new play by Kathryn Walat. I've worked before with director Michael Michetti at the Theatre @ Boston Court, so it feels a little like coming home. If you've never ventured to Pasadena to see the work they do there, you owe yourself the trip. They are known for doing plays that are, per their mission statement, "creative, bold and daring," and they have an especially sharp eye for exciting new works. Kate's play is all those things. Also, it prominently features a lightning strike, heightened libidos, symphonic music and Tootsie Pops.
I'm collaborating with Boston Court marketing director Brian Polack in creating a video/Twitter diary of the rehearsal process. You can see the first two video installments here, and you can follow the day to day, which will include things like links to the research we're doing on the nature of brain injuries, the source of creativity and creation itself by following me @DeborahPuette and the theater @BostonCourt.
"Creation" opens October 13 at The Theatre @ Boston Court. Read more about the show and get tickets here. If you make it out to the theater, email me here and we can say hello after.
