I also know and have worked with most of the team already, and those that I haven't are fellow LNT regulars so I already feel familiar with them. This in itself is a remarkable feeling - a reunion of a rehearsal process, a homecoming.
Meanwhile Ora and Jacob are hard at work on The Amazing Story Machine back home in NY.
I miss working on Gruff! (the team at LICM killed it btw) but being up here and doing Shakespeare again with so many friends is the perfect antidote.
