3 Days and Counting

Here are some pix from rehearsal.

Mother Tongue opens on Tuesday, which means the last week has been full of total panic, alternating with moments of that glorious, quiet click that you feel when a moment finally falls together on stage.

I have no idea how the show is going to go, but I do know that this has been a wonderful few weeks. I spend my days laughing and bouncing ideas back and forth with a group of really creative and talented folks. Bob’s direction is a revelation and Jacob’s live score is so gorgeous.

It’s a welcome change from sitting at my desk and bouncing ideas off my wall. I’m not giving up the solitary writing life, but it does feel good to alternate it with actual human interaction.

I hope to see some of you there! I promise you won’t be bored.

    Jillian-you rocked it! An amazing journey that was beautifully woven with funny, thought-provoking, deeply moving insight into a life’s journey. You are an amazing talent and should be very proud of the show!! I brought 3 friends who had never met you, had no idea of your personal story and also walked away moved and amazed. Congratulations!!!

    People should fly in for this. It was amazing. So much talent on the stage. Fully-drawn characters fully inhabited. Amazing. Strong stories told sharply.

    Kudos! And break a leg tonight.
