There are many, many things that a director has to watch out for. And my endeavor with As You Like It is no different.
Like what, you ask?
Like staying healthy.
No, I’m not sick. Yet. Knock on wood.
But my cast? That, my friends, is another story altogether.
Between a broken and re-injured foot, bronchitis and walking pneumonia, stomach ulcers, and–can you believe it–a possible concussion, keeping these guys together and healthy has been a challenge.
Sometimes I think I should get everyone in the cast a breathing mask, rubber gloves, and a bubble-wrap suit. Here’s hoping that the next 16 days are safe, and we make it through the 5 weekend run injury- and sickness-free.
