Thunder from Below

posted by Damaso Rodriguez at 9:24 AM
During our rehearsal for GRACE last night (Sunday), at about 9:38pm, you couldn't help but hear and feel a rumble coming from the Playhouse mainstage. There was literally a vibration in the rehearsal room caused by the thunderous applause for what I could only imagine was the curtain call of the evening preview of FENCES by August Wilson (starring Laurence Fishburne and Angela Bassett).

If you didn't catch it, here's the excellent L.A. Times piece by Jan Breslauer that ran on Sunday. It gives great focus to Wilson's impact on the regional theatre movement in this country.

You can't help but get caught up in the excitement buzzing around the Playhouse campus. Many of us from Furious will be in the audience for Friday's opening night performance. Check back for a post on what it was like.
