I love first days. Well, I should say I have a love/hate relationship with any read through. There's such excitement in the room because you're about to hear the voices of the characters for the first time but you can also feel the nervousness! It was great to see Harriet Tubman up on her feet yesterday, and the music is brilliant! I have such a love of gospel and negro spirituals, so hearing that for the first time was just perfect!!!
I'm going to be talking about Our Place on the Stage tonight on BBC London radio 84.9 fm between 9-9:45pm.
Hope you can tune in!
