• Your Over Analysis Is Not Necessary

    Dear Duet Partner,

    Although I think you have a great voice and great potential, you drive
    me up the walls when we practice. We do not need to block every single
    movement. I feel like if I don’t reign you in we would end up blocking
    every bat of an eyelash. Our hour and a half rehearsal today was an
    hour too long. Did we really need to spend twenty minutes discussing
    how to walk to a bench? Although you seem really dedicated to getting
    the piece right with accents and blocking, it is a bit excessive.
    Personally, I don’t want to look like a robot performing or
    over-rehearsed. If you would have listened to my advice about just
    letting some of the movements happen rather than marking it in your
    music (which we aren’t even using since we perform tomorrow) then
    maybe the scene wouldn’t feel so stale. I can not handle the
    micro-management of your version of blocking because I feel like the
    scene has lost all life. Let the over analysis and insecurities go.
    There is honestly no point in dissecting the scene into such a way
    that is no longer a scene but just a bunch of lines with transitions
    like a slideshow. No offense, but I can’t wait for this to be over.

    Your duet partner
