Adventures of a Modern Day, Middle-Aged Hero, on the Glory Road(to family security)


Engineering in art.

So, this evening we didn't have rehearsal, but we did have a bit of a work party, assembling the stage we will be working on.  One of the primary features of Les Miserables is that it supposed to take place on a rotating stage...it keeps the show flowing smoothly, with no need to swap out backgrounds for different scenes. 

Well, rotating stages don't put themselves together. 

Yes...for all intents and purposes, it's a 26 foot 'Lazy Susan', but, in reality, it's slightly more complex than that.  Especially for someone like me...I'm not exactly mechanically inclined, so watching something like this come together is impressive. 

One week until opening night!

  1. You would be surprised what just being around such a work effort will do for your mechanical inclination and capacity. It's almost as much seeing, so being able to envision, things, as it is knowing how to do something. Knowledge without curiosity or interest is less useful than a will to improve or... optimize... something. Magic starts in the eye.
