Update #3

Rehearsal Update: If you could be anywhere in the world right now ...


We just wrapped up our 2nd to last rehearsal before we head off to Miami! Armed with our latest and greatest version of the script with updated translations from Esther, we ran every scene of the show including a brand new one that we read for the very first time.

In that scene, the Interrogator asks Amante a question that he has difficulty answering, "If you could be anywhere in the world right now, doing anything you wanted, where would you be? And what would you be doing?"

The Amante character dismisses the question because it seems so foolish. But what the Interrogator is really asking him to do is activate his imagination for a moment. Instead of being stuck in what the current reality is, she pushes him to consider what other possibilities there might be.

Ultimately, I hope that is what this project inspires in people. I'm reminded of an interview Sage and I had with Lillian Manzor, Director of the Latin American Studies Program at the University of Miami, Sage said that to resolve our current conflicts the thing we need most is imagination (see the full interview at
