(Day 5) Backstage

Rachel A and I are on headset backstage for the show. It is very exciting. We get to listen in on Esti calling cues to lights and sound, and have a line of communication open between the booth and backstage.

Though we had a few minutes of down time during the cue-to-cue, during the show we will be much too busy to take pictures on my computer. We two are in charge of all of the set changes. We've been practicing our transitions to make sure that they happen quickly and smoothly. Sometimes we had to run the same bit three times in a row, each time dividing the work a little differently, using a different entrance, or simply practicing another time to make sure we all knew where we were supposed to be. As Rachel A says, "Basically, we be bosses."
