Snippets from the Actor’s Journal: An Old Coat

“… Finding my rhythm within Shakespeare’s words again is a little like putting on a jacket you haven’t worn in a very long time. It has stiffened in places and you’ve grown out of the sleeves and it smells a bit musty but after a good wash and a little tailoring, and wearing it down in all the right places so it fits just the way you like it and its new again. Better even. We’re not at that place yet. Still smells a but musty…” – Shakespeare Shakedown: Midsummer Nights Dream, rehearsal journal 2 (1/10/2013)
