Discussion with Desiree Prewitt, veteran director of 14/48:
“Right now the cast is trying to master their lines so when we come back together we can focus in picking up the pace – getting the comedy timing. We spent the morning blocking. Right now, what’s important is focusing on encouraging the actors, giving them positive feedback”
As someone who has done 14/48 many times as an actor, Desiree knows the process that can happen to actors – you lose confidence in your choices and begin to second-guess yourself.
But as Desiree says ‘when Dr. Theater comes in tonight, they will be brilliant.’
And they will.
