News from France

Elaine and Mayer called from France and then again in the evening with Elaine's inimitably detailed blow-by-blow account of their adventures. I am thrilled that she has become part of the theatre ensemble. She is doing the sound, helping with the stage mechanics, chauffeuring the group, ordering pizza for Isaac, a thirteen-year-old, and watching over Mayer like a hawk--and speaking French! She says the production is outstanding and that everyone is very taken with Mayer and his work. He has had two media interviews and their Friday opening night performance--a world premier of a work created especially for this festival--was well-received. As Pinki says, the audience laughed at the right places. She says Jennie is amazing, so creative, working day and night, and very resourceful, adapting to the circumstances, cueing Mayer, so he can face the audience (otherwise he would turn to the stage to take his cue from the images). Today Mark and Guy, the Belgian relatives, arrive, so that will be very nice.
This morning, Saturday, we'll all go over to Danny's and instant message with Pinki in order to see a webcast via a webcam, which I do not understand, but will figure out when are there. We are eager to see the performance!
