For the past 9 months or so, I’ve had a widget on my iGoogle homepage that counts down the days until Season 4 of Sketch22 begins.
Today, it reads: 0 Days until Sketch22 Season 4
Last night we had an okay dress and tech rehearsal. What kept it from being better than just okay is that we had to wait quite some time before we began, due to mechanical difficulties beyond our control regarding our ability to play video easily. We tried to rectify the issue, but ultimately couldn’t and then we were left to improvise a less than ideal way to run the show anyway.
The run-through had the usual little hiccups that we’re pretty confident will be cleared up for tonight’s premiere performance. But it was valuable, because it was really the first time we ran the show completely without stopping, and as such, was the first time we got a sense of how the show works. I’m happy to report that I think the show is going to be great. Lots of big laughs, lots of strangeness, lots of entertainment.
Like every show past, I can’t wait for people to see what we’ve come up with. Only a few hours left now.
