Director’s Blog: “Isn’t That What It’s All About?”

"Chicago" closed its blockbuster run with multiple sell-outs and a packed houses every night!

“Chicago” closed its blockbuster run with multiple sell-outs and  packed houses every night!

What a ride! I feel so blessed to have had this experience! It’s been a dream of mine to direct this show, and I am fortunate to have done so with 40 fantastic Tulsa theatre artists. Many thanks to Sara Phoenix, artistic director of Theatre Tulsa, for giving me the opportunity.

Pulling off a production of this size is no joke! I have a newfound respect for the big tours moving shows in and out of theatres across the country each week. It’s hard to fully understand the degree of difficulty in pulling off a show of this magnitude, and I am so proud of the cast and crew for making it appear so effortless. They worked very hard and didn’t give up when the going got tough (broken fingers and bruised ribs, changing choreography for “We Both Reached for the Gun”, and the insanity of tech week – microphones, projectors, quick changes, oh my!). I don’t know that we can appreciate the enormity of our achievement just yet. But we will – as the show gets filed away in the memory bank, when we’re no longer meeting for rehearsals 5 times a week, we’ll begin to miss it and realize just how special the experience has been.
We made great theatre, we forged new friendships, we had fun, we learned – and isn’t that what it’s all about? I was reminded to let go of perfection, embrace the moment and each person’s unique talents, rise to the challenge, and to be confident. I am grateful to each and every one of my cast and crew for taking the journey with me – I’d do it again with all of you any day! And thank you to all the Tulsans (and beyond!) who came out and supported us!
