A Few Pics from the Weekend Previews.

David Staller of The Shaw Project, Jim Brochu & Robert Osborne of Turner Classic Movies.

Jim Brochu receives copy of rare photograph from Anne Kaufman Schneider.
It's of her father, George S. Kaufman with Alexander Woollcott,
upon whom the character of Sheridan Whiteside (Brochu) was based.
The show has now played to full houses at three previews. Doing a classic 40s comedy like this takes precision and style, which can only really be discovered in front of audiences. So, a few little hiccups here and there aside, the cast is terrific, but now the real adjusting begins. It's just part of the process and it's arduous, but necessary.

Today is a day off, so I'm gonna keep Jim warm and pampered today. Next week, the critics begin to arrive.
