I ADORE the new rehearsal spaces and it is amazing to all be in the same of the rooms together. But we are in a basement and now we are doing runs of Act I which has all 34 of us together with no natural light or fresh air for 6 hours at a stretch. So things like this happen:
When the dancers are dancing, which is often, we have to keep ourselves occupied. I caught Rich Gray (who has been in over 20 shows at the 5th as either an actor or playing in the band) doing his "antennae up the nose" trick. See what happens when there is a lack of air?
