Since this show takes place in Paris I'm pretty sure Wandelprobe is French for OHMYGODIFORGOTMYLINES! But apparently tonight it's actually just the first marriage of orchestra, singing, blocking, choreography, tech and I guess lines if we can remember them. We are freed from the earthly shackles of sets, props and costumes, though we are encouraged to wear some sort of clothing out of propriety. And since we're doing the show in a half-round arena, our pretty freaking fabulous orchestra is wired for sound and hidden in a nearby room ... behind this super-secret door. Where there is sometimes pizza. Which I'm pretty sure is also French for OHMYGODFREEPIZZA. I'm becoming quite the international man of culture in this show.
