Well, I am trying to fit in a little time in the morning before going to my "job that pays for groceries" to familiarize myself with the script again. It's a little distracting with the chickens. So much to look at! Pecking, scratching, fights over the "flock block". But I've made it through half of the first act and, oh ya, there are some dramatic moments I gotta get my head back into! Especially, as I get ready for Act 2! Drugs, alcohol and all that crazy stuff!

I love hearing her voice! It catches and is hoarse at times. You can hear the years of singing in the streets over the city traffic and smog. I could no way try to imitate this speaking voice as I would ruin my own but it's great to hear!
I saw a clip excerpt of the piece in a documentary about Piaf and the set in that piece, plus the cover of this record were the inspiration for my set!
But that's a topic for another post!
