An image from rehearsal, “Marriage Prayer.”
Blessed are you, God of our ancestors,
blessed forever is your holy name.
Let the heavens praise you, and all your creation for evermore.
The Lord our God told Adam it is not good to be alone; a partner I will make for you.
So Eve was made from Adam’s side to be his help and support.
And as it was for them, so it is for us tonight.
(Adapted from Tobit 8:4-9a)
We made it through the whole production for the first time last night. Two hours and twenty minutes which includes one song redo and a two-minute intermission instead of the planned ten.
