FOLLIES SITZPROBE

For those of who don’t know what a sitzprobe is, it’s the day, in a musical, when you sing through the songs with the orchestra for the first time.  We had ours today.  It was unbelievable.  26 pieces everyone.  26-PIECE ORCHESTRA!!!   It was truly one of the most thrilling moments I’ve had here at the Shaw . . . and I’ve had a great time here.  We have a harp, y’all – A HARP!!!    hahaahahaaha  it was amazing.  Such sound, such detail of instrumentation.  It made me realize how criminal it is to have to ever downsize an original orchestration – although I know that at, this point, more or less every theatre in Canada has to do just that.  For those of you who will be lucky enough to see Follies here at Shaw, you are in for a rare treat.  Truly.   Get your tickets before they sell out.
