As an intern for Suellen Vance I was able (and honored) to attend the reading of Central Avenue Breakdown on Sunday March 11th. So many emotions ran through me before, during and after the reading. It was such an honor to be in the presence of such a delightful and dangerously talented group. The show’s material is incredible, yet I believe the reason this show will succeed is because of the amazing team they have. Step by step I am watching this production flourish wildly. There is so much more I can write, I just have no clue where to start.
As for my show, right now some scenes are unrecognizable. It’s absolutely incredible. Cut a song, added many scenes to develop some of the lost story lines, added a new upbeat song for Jaden, I am on fire lately! (LOL) I’m even adding some character traits that I bet an audience member of the last production, wouldn’t even see coming! I believe a lot of what i’ve noticed in my own show has come from watching the way Central Avenue Breakdown has been coming along lately. I’ve been charting different story lines and making sure things connect, start, end, have a turning point. I’m getting to know my show more, even though I didn’t think that was humanly possibly.
GROWTH IS BEAUTIFUL.
Observation is my biggest key to success as far as writing and re-writing dialogue. I’m really making progress.
