Post Reno... accent?
I know that an accent isn't absolutely necessary for Reno, but I was wondering if it was actually a bad idea. What do you guys think?

That's what I thought. Moon, Evelyn, and Bonnie all have accents in our production, so I thought Reno too would be a bit too much. Some people said I should try it though (not my director), so I wanted some more opinions. Thanks!

Just to check, in this situation what accent is the 'norm' for the production and what accents are the exceptions using?
