Atelier Day 1!

The fabulous Adrien Reju works something equally fabulous out on our (toy) accordion. (L)

Together Adrien, Director Christopher Sivertsen, Writer Ilana Turner, Actress Cara Pifko (Réjane) and Marketing Director-turned-Stage Manager Michelle Furnace talked through each song or musical interlude in the script. 

We explored musical themes for each character and began to establish a rhythmic pulse to delineate ‘on-stage’ action from real life ‘backstage.’ Michelle was like a stealthy sponge, soaking up everything everyone said and sending an amazing list of to-dos and ideas at the day’s end. 

We also drank a lot of coffee. (See Christopher serving coffee below.) Weeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
