We on it's a daughter and we get to make the show our own every year so it's a different sense even if you see nominee has six or seven times before seeing it this week and it's gonna be like a whole new production and how how does that happen that way. On it happens because I I do they homered as an actor IA before rehearsals I figure out who make characters are played the last stand in mind you wanted to potential fathers. And so I go into the rehearsal room. And a lot of broadly shows it's it's very formulaic where its sat like there is like the funny guy and there's the straight man there is you know the character girl dish show.
