Second Night Speech

February 4, 2011

The second night I usually give a speech about the second night blahs. It goes like this: “Okay, you all had a great opening night, the audience loved it, a bunch of things really came together. And normally the second night has more mistakes in it, because you get cocky, and you’re not as scared. But let’s keep things fresh and focused, and really knock this one out of the park too. Don’t just assume you know what’s next. Every time you have a second to think, think, what’s the next thing I need to do? Where am I supposed to be? What lines do I have trouble remembering?’ If we all do that, we’ll make this night just as wonderful as last night.”

It’s a cliché, but also worth saying that as old as the show may be for you, it’s the first time this audience has seen it, and you should give them a good show.
