Did you have any experience with Timon of Athens before this project?
It was quite emotional, and such a testament both to the production and our rehearsals last year that nearly everyone made sure they were available to come back.
So Maximianno had to bring us all together, one voice, one rhyme, and that involved taking the script and reading, re-reading and reading again. And just when we thought we had read it enough, we re-read it some more. It sounds laborious, but by the end we were unified (both in style and understanding) with Shakespeare.
