The First Big Cut

Well, it’s official. We’ve cut the majority of “Without Me.” The dance and music captured the essence of (and the jokes we wanted to make about) the Michelangelos, Picassos, Rothkos, and O’Keeffes so effectively that the stanzas of lyrics for each gang weren’t needed. So the intros for each stay, as well as one chorus for the whole group. The rest is out. And I think for the better.

The performers were disappointed, but I also know they understood. And, of course, without them, we wouldn’t have even known we needed to make the edit.
