The long road of creating the world has come to an end. With the show opening tomorrow, the cast and crew spent one final rehearsal learning the ways of the world. Before you see Eve take the first bite of the apple on stage, let’s hear some more memories that happened backstage.
Conrad Bianco (Raphael) remembers being amazed at Andreas O’Rourke (Adam) and Ruthy Stapleton (Eve) as they rehearsed their lines by speed reading and eating potato chips during rehearsals.
Amy Ellefson (Assistant Stage Manager) dubbed Ruthy as the poster child for ‘Wardrobe Malfunctions.’
Jamie Williams (Lucifer) proudly labeled herself the ‘Diva’ of the group saying she drove folks nuts, but she did it all for the show.
Conrad says his favorite moment was a cast discussion during the first week of rehearsal on how big corporations are destroying humans.
Rebecca Rocereto (Azrael) enjoyed seeing Eric Armstrong become God. He embraced his role, and she’s sure the audience will be completely caught up in his disappointment after Adam and Eve ate the apple.
And so with that, rehearsals come to an end. Tomorrow is the beginning of the world…and other business. Well, at least in the R-ACT theater it’s all beginning tomorrow when the curtain opens.
