I had worked with this playwright in January, where we I had a lot of fun working on Golden Ladder. In that show, we hardly ever had an "audience," and the work each week was only for the people involved in the play. We did have two semi-public readings of it, but they emerged almost as afterthoughts. With Sex Tape, however, those public performances were always in mind. As much as we would try not to focus on the upcoming shows, an element of them always worked its way into our rehearsals and discussions. Going into the first show, I actually felt over-rehearsed. I'm one of the only actors who will usually admit to such a thing, but I will always prefer to rehearse too little than too much. Now, the right of amount of rehearsal is even better, and I want to make that clear.
The shows themselves were a lot of fun, but I almost wish that this process would have been more focused on putting up a final version of the show. That line of thought was present throughout the process, but everyone insisted that it wasn't about the product. Interesting work, a good time, and I'm glad that I took the opportunity. But this time wasn't quite as satisfying as the same process earlier in the year with Golden Ladder.
