'Red Wine and iTunes...'Nice. Day off.
We had our opening show post-mortem meeting this afternoon and all went pretty well. It's very interesting to have ten people in a room giving their often wildly differing impressions of the same show. Generally though the feedback was positive though we know there are things still to work on. We agreed that playing a brand new song in complete darkness was possibly closer to eccentricity than wisdom. We also acknowledged that three brand new songs in one show was perhaps asking a little too much of an audience but it was opening night after all, so maybe we were showing off just a little bit.
There were a lot of very positive things though. Miss Sarajevo worked well, I liked the new lights in Walk On and the 'questions' segue into End of the World. We'll look forward to developing the show over the coming months.
A few of us had dinner in Nice then ended up in my hotel room, as I have the best balcony view. It was still very warm and we had red wine and iTunes, so the rest was easy.
