Rehearsals Underway for Feet First

August 22, 2011 - 1:05 PM

It's nuts. They are rehearsing on most days from 9:00 in the morning until 1:00 p.m. No other show that we have ever produced has demanded such an early daytime schedule.

But then, we've never had two young mothers as the primary collaborators on a project before.

FEET FIRST IN THE WATER WITH A BABY IN MY TEETH, features the work of playwright/performer Megan Gogerty and director Alexis Chamow. Both women have kids . . . really little kids like four months and three years old.

So they will be dropping the kids off at child care and coming in to rehearse like mad women for four or five hours straight,

FEET FIRST . . . is about Megan's attempts to be a working artist, ardent feminist and a mom. Alexis came to Iowa City to direct the play with her baby girl in tow. Talk about art imitating life and vice versa.
Rehearsals start today.
