Jesus Christ Superstar (again)

Postby GonzoBass » Fri May 11, 2012 10:08 am

Got the nod yesterday!

I'll be holding down the bass chair for this one in October
under the amazing direction of the amazing Quack Moore this time.

(...and did I mention that she's amazing?)

We're up to "Hell Week"-
Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu rehearsals,
then opening weekend with Fri and Sat shows.

It's a shame that the drummer has seemed to confuse group rehearsal time with personal practice time.
[smilie=tosser.gif]
This is one of my personal pet peeves
and it has really has made things difficult for me, to say the least
(way too many odd bars and sudden changes to "boom-chick" his way through this score)
but it's slowly coming together.

Quack (and the director) have rewritten this score into something quite unique.

Cut this part, double that part, new dynamics here, halftime there,
this ending sucks so here's what we're going to do,
insert four bars here, scene change vamp there,
time this cut off to the (yet unseen) video,
when we get together with the cast follow Jesus' lead on this one as far as ritards, etc.
and song #21 got completely dropped with a new one written to take it's place,
which we get to see/hear for the first time tomorrow...

Lots of loose ends and details to finalize this week.

Just absolutely wild but I have total faith in the musicians she's assembled
(not so much the drummer)
and I am learning... so... fucking... much... watching how this lady works/thinks.

Lovin' it! Opera season starts in a couple weeks, so it'll be 'into the madness' for me too. The whole On The Fly/Seat Of The Pants thing drives me crazy during rehearsals - how can you 'rehearse' if you never do it the same way twice - but in the end, looking back at how all of the changes came together to make a two hundred year old story into a unique production, it's pretty damn cool.

Pics from rehearsal are starting to hit Facebook.

Pontius Pilate

King Herod

Judas

Jesus
(Pedro can emote and this was taken at rehearsal!)
[smilie=smilie_kopf.gif]
If you only click on one of these pic, click on this one...

Oh, BTW...
All of the 30+ costumes in this production were done, from scratch, by my Mom.
She had retired after 20 years as the costumer for the Hilo Community Players
but was asked by the Palace Theater to return to the game and do this gig.
