Rehearsals are going swimmingly...I don't have much else to say. I just really wanted to use the word "swimmingly."
Everyone has really hit the ground running and I think it's going to be a really exciting revival. The few changes and surprises being made are all in an effort to make the show more genuine and relevant. I'm really happy with the way things are coming to life. It's nice to see these characters in a way I never have before.
Wait until you see this teen ensemble. They will blow you away. These kids (yes...KIDS) are so talented.
Allie Trimm is remarkable as Kim and I cannot wait to see everything she brings to the role. It's been wonderful working with the cast and crew so far. The whole experience has been sweet and entirely unique. I wish I could tell you all of the wonderful things our creative team is doing with numbers like "Telephone Hour" and "Lot of Livin," but you'll just have to wait until September 10th when previews start!
Has anyone walked by the new Henry Miller Theatre yet? It's really absurd how beautiful it is.
Lately, I have been making an effort to be more available on the Internet. I've really loved opening the comments back up on this blog.
Today...I started a Twitter account. Yes. It's true. I'm horrified.
I think I'll take it slow at first. In the spirit of Bye Bye Birdie (har har) and the fact that find Blake Daniel's very entertaining, I'm giving it a shot.
So, get your twitter twatty tweeting tweets on and I'll twit away and tweet along with the twats...cool?
It's Twitter.com/mattfdoyle. Yes, there's an f. There are many Matt Doyles out there.
