The money's not coming in as fast as we had hoped and are quite optimistic for. I believe the Friday gala is going to bring interest and funds - at the risk of saying the word relief, I believe that's approaching something I'll feel when the eleven months are paid for. A lot of work can be done in eleven months. Work that I can focus on and think about!!! The business side of me is having an absolute ball being an ultra-resourced and incredibly well organized manager of funds and property, but the theatrical side of me feels a little quashed. The ideas are all there, per usual, but I think I need to take them to the gym a little more.
I tell ya, though, 'Neverwhere' is going to be a trip of the best kind. Speaking of trips, I hereby offer to fly Neil Gaiman here and back from wherever he would like to come from - out of pocket - because I am very proud of Sasha's work and darned if this play doesn't have all the humor and drama of what is a very great book.
Two pictures out of my amusement (and USB cord):
First we have the evervescoisity of the Earl (dressed, rather ironically, as Gary) with several of his attendants:
and a quite candid (and surenuffwedid!) photo of Giles Gonnsen and myself singing what we hope will be the next Pop British hit, 'Alright' - (receiving its world premiere in 'Neverwhere'!)
Pleasant thoughts take you all!
