The worst part about tech...

... is standing in place, wearing the same pair of shoes for hours and hours at a time. Now, an actor's shoes are not exactly the most comfortable things known to man, but we also don't have to wear them for any more than 2 hours at a time during a performance, so to stand in them all day is rather hard. But other than aching feet, the tech for La Mancha is going well. It goes slow, but there are lots of light cues and specific timing and moving lights, so it's a mess to begin with. We just need to sit down and ride it out. I have a major costume change coming up after dinner, so much so that there is actually going to be a short demonstration on how to dress me before we try the change. It's lots of pieces that go together in a very specific way. Fantastic. I'll try to write a post all about my attitude toward costumes and fittings, making the blog contain a little more philosophical musings.
