Space was at a premium at The Guild (Oliver, The Musical, is in full-swing and prepping to go on the Showplace stage), so we lounged on the stage and ran lines. Kenn came in to give us a pep talk and discuss opportunities and punch lines. Pun intended. Kenn is an excellent fight choreographer, well-versed in sword play – oh, did I not tell you there would be sword play?
We’re using The Guild’s Toledo steel rapiers, last seen last year in The Complete Works of Wm. Shakspr (Abridged), which also featured Kenn and his fabulous physical comedy. Kenn joked how they bent the rapiers one night and used them like that the next. It’s all fun until somebody loses an eye!
