Steven just about killed me in his czardas outfit. With his Sigg water bottle, puffy nylon booties, and backpack added to the fur hat, collar and overcoat of the costume, he looked like he was heading out for a hike in the Swiss Alps. Or maybe like a Sherpa leading a trek up into the Himalayas.
Of course, he shed the accessories before we did the czardas dance yesterday. We had a great time stomping around and being Hungarian aristocracy together!
And so the first two of five performances wraps up. Everyone is taking a day off today after an intense week. I think I can make a safe generalization in saying that for most of us, today involved laundry, grocery shopping, sleep, and maybe a massage. (Mine also included a trip to the podiatrist for some toe repairs). Tomorrow we head back to the studio for class and rehearsals for some new casts that haven't performed yet. Wednesday we'll rehearse the student performance we'll do on Thursday, and then three more regular performances on Friday and Saturday.
