The Rehearsal is the Show!

I think Devon Franklin says it best in his book "Produced by Faith", and I think it applies well to an actors rehearsal process!

He talks about Michael Jackson's show, "This is it", that is basically taped rehearsals of what would have been for his next concert tour.  He talks of how Mike was dressed any old way during his rehearsals because he was in fact just rehearsing and he needed to wear things that were comfortable.  However, "What Michael didn't realize," he says, "was that the rehearsal was the show."

Additionally, I was watching Michael Jordan's  interview with Ahmad Rashaad for his 50th birthday and MJ said something just as intriguing; that he treated every practice like it was the actual game, so nothing he did surprised him in his actual games!  What was amazing to us, was no different that what took place in his practices.

This got me to thinking what an amazing practice and certainly the way we as actors should rehearse/practice! 

Our rehearsals should be done as if it were the show!  Our audition sides should be rehearsed as if it was the final take! That video you send in as a submission should be as if you were on set!


That's a wrap.

It's simple, just ASK....

“I bargained with Life for a penny,
And Life would pay no more,
However I begged at evening
When I counted my scanty store.

For Life is a just employer,
He gives you what you ask,
But once you have set the wages,
Why, you must bear the task.
I worked for a menial’s hire,
Only to learn, dismayed,
That any wage I had asked of Life,
Life would have willingly paid.”

-Jessie B. Rittenhouse
