Rehearsal Report

This week, our cast has been working on the element of style that was prevalent in the 1950’s.  This means lots of research into the main players in Hollywood in the early 50’s – like David O. Selznick and Donna Reed (a Proud Kate for writing and producing her own television show!).  It also means video research! Van Johnson and Joan Crawford are assisting us with inflections and vocal work, Carole Lombard and John Barrymore with physical posture, and Rosalind Russell and Cary Grant with pace.  We’ve taken bits of screwball comedy and high drama from newspaper offices, diners, stage doors, and Park Avenue mansions.  Our actors are succeeding a style that may have gone out of fashion but not out of favor!
