I’m in rehearsal for Into the Woods at Grandstreet Theater in Helena, MT.
I’m in heaven.
We have about eight days to stage the show (Sondheim!) and everyone is working so hard. This encounter, from the middle of a music rehearsal, stuck out to me…
Extremely earnest, frustrated girl: I promise, I WILL get it right this time.
Our incredible music director: And if you don’t, that’s okay too.
I hate the feeling of doing something incorrectly, of being wrong, of being messy. I want to be perfect, and I want to be perfect now. But if I’m not, that’s okay too.
