  5. I try to take at least one picture a night during rehearsals and performances when I stage manage.

    Here are some from the first three performances of The Coarse Acting Show at Theatre In The Park in Raleigh NC. The show opened on July 11th, 2014 and will run for two more weekends.

    This has been one of those shows: 4 acts, 3 actors replaced the week before tech, fight calls.

    The cast (after the 3 were replaced) has been amazing and all three performances on opening weekend were filled with lots of quality laughers.
