And naturally, being this close to a major opening, the anxiety dreams known as “the actor’s nightmare” have begun to strike. Cast members Teddy Spencer, Reed Martin, and Austin Tichenor talk about the forms their nightmares take and share thoughts about audience engagement, the dangers of complacency, actual (as to opposed to imagined) actor nightmares, shout-outs to The Millionaire and the Bard, the Gilbert & Sullivan operetta Iolanthe, and the Bruce Dickinson, and how the nightmares can eventually (if temporarily) be shaken off.
