April 2, 2012 at 1:21 AMEvery year since moving down to Houston, I've played in the pit orchestra for the Houston Bar Association's "Night Court" musical comedy. It is a production written by lawyers, with lawyer actors, stage crew, etc... Only in the pit do you find a few non-lawyer types, mostly in the string section. This year it is Viva Laws Vegas .
This year, instead of being in the pit, we are going to be up on stage. We have been duly warned by the Director that we will have to succumb to something called "blocking" and choreography, and no, that does not mean sitting in a nice row and bowing in the same direction. Its a bit daunting thinking about doing all of these other things besides just playing the music well.
But, it will be fun as it always is.
