They build 'em strong in Texas

Tonight's rehearsal reminded us all that although our show takes place in Texas, we still have to be prepared for Washington-style natural disasters. Fortunately, the set comes equipped with our very own earthquake shelter: a picnic table!

This isn't just any ordinary table, though. It has to survive the wrath of actors jumping, climbing and dancing on it. Believe me, we're all very grateful for its tank-like sturdiness, even if it takes half the cast to move it. Starbuck is worth it, right?

Plus, to quote our stage manager Carine, "We have incorporated it into our duck and cover nuclear attack preparedness routine." I know where I'll be if disaster strikes. But don't worry-- there's plenty of room for everyone!
