Tomorrow we load into the Atlas Theater for a week of tech rehearsals for WAM! (wolfgang amadeus mozart), the new full-evening music/dance/theatre piece about Mozart’s life which Jared Nelson, David Palmer and I are collaborating on. It will feature our Studio Company and musical artists from The In Series. The music has been swell to work with, and Mozart is such a character, leaving so many amazing letters from which we draw naughty inspiration’ that I’ve been in stitches at every rehearsal. Some highlights:
Wolfie’s letter describing his own penchant for farting in public, followed by an hilarious farting danceby the odiferous men; a risqué game of spin-the-bottle which is described in one of Wolfie’s letters; a grand Esther Williams number as Wolfie crosses the English Channel on tour; Carriage rides, smooching scenes, duplicitous dealings with Salieri, and so forth…
It’s going to be one helluva ride!
