There is a script with cues for the show,
but Glenn says
“The transcript is quite inaccurate.
I don't know Spanish,
so following along with even a 100% accurate transcript would be a chore,
but what actually is spoken diverges from the printout at many places—so
it is embarrassingly easy to get lost and not know what one should be doing or
“one problem is that parts of the soundrack are now innacurate
(in talking about the planetarium)
and I can’t easily update that soundtrack.
Apparently Juana Rocha let her visa expire and is stuck back in Mexico.
There will be a different show in September or October .”
