Written on Skin in rehearsal

By Shannon Eblen

The cast of Written on Skin works in the rehearsal hall, where two different set elements have been arranged on either side of the room with the conductor, director, pianist, and stage manager in the middle. The real set will rotate on a turntable, but in rehearsals, the cast and crew are the ones who have to move back and forth.
