Cast list should go up anytime now. I have heard back from the director. He asked me to choreograph the show as well as be in it. I just don't know what role I got yet. I am hoping for the best, but expecting the worst. It makes the let down a little easier. My happy thought, though, is that I get to choreograph J+H for a professional theatre. That will be sweet. Thanks for asking!

Quick update: I am choreographing the entire show, I am the lead dancer, I am in th chorus, and I am the understudy for Lucy Harris. I am actually quite happy, because all of this will show my versatility. First rehearsal is tomorrow, and we open Oct 5.

^ Wow... good for you!

Choreographing J&H has got to be a tough job though. Facade is such an interesting number. Any plans on what you're doing for it?

Facade is truly the hardest one for me to work on. I think once I hear the right voices (our first rehearsal is tonight) then everything will start to click into place. I am thinking of ways to show the difference in classes of people, and they add some layers for depth. Every version I have seen has kept Facade very horizontal in line, and it kind of bores me. All I know is time is ticking.
Murder,Murder is almost done. The director wants me to add umbrellas as props, so I have to figure out a way to make them look like they belong in the song and movement. The rest of the movement for Murder,Murder is done, and I am in love with it.
Bring On The Men is almost done. I am meeting the dancers tonight, so I'll know their abilities and will be able to get more work done. I am reallylooking forward to this adventure! =D>

Oooh... our production kept Facade pretty horizontal (actually pretty vertical) but we utlizied platforms and everything. Murder, Murder was our best number in the entire show. It wasn't really a dance number, but it was the dictionary definition of organized chaos in the best possible way. Are you choreographing the fights in it as well or are you bringing in a stage combat specialist? Also, what sort of movement are you planing for Alive?

I am not sure if I have to set the stage combat scenes. I guess I will find out more tonight. As for Alive, well, every Jekyll that has been cast has opted out because of conflicts, so once I have a Jekyll, I am sure thatthe director and I will come up with something. It's such a strong song, I'll have to see where it takes me.
Just finished choreographing Bring On The Men. I think it has the right mixture of class and hoochyness. I'm sure the director will let me know if he likes it.

I love the broadway choreography for alive. including the fire at the end. I've seen a production though were Hyde smacks the bishop into the railing on a bridge and it snaps away and the Bishop falls to his death. I'm pretty sure it was on purpose, lol

I meant the first "Alive"...

We had really cool, creepy, zombie choreography for it. I'm not really a fan of the show, but that number was awesome.

Thank you. I finally got the correct music last night, so I have today and tomorrow to get Bring On The Men finished. It should be fun!
