months

intensive
rehearsals,
each
in
the
metropolis
at
Lincoln
Center
and
in
Brooklyn
in
a
place
known as
Dumbo
there
and
that is
when
I
was
actually
in a position
to
leap
out
of
my
seat.
Rita
(Moreno)
was
there
too
and
was
dancing
with
the
forged.
We
have been
so
influenced
or
compelled
to
get
up
on
our
toes.
It
was
such
a
life
in
the
air,
music
and
dance,”

rehearsals
noticed
everybody
dancing

throughout
the
filmmaking
course of,

I
did not
even
faucet
my
foot.
I
was
simply
too
centered
on
the
monitor,
on
what
we
have been
getting…
what
photographs
we
have been
capturing.
But
this
was
the
most
pleasant
household
affair
I’ve
had
since
‘E.T.’.
‘E.T.’ had
felt
like
I
was
a
dad
to
all
these
youngsters.
And
definitely,
I
was
not
a
dad
in
my
actual
life…
my
first
little one
was
born
three
years
after
I
directed
‘E.T.
“And
this
was
the
subsequent
time
I
had
that
variety
of
feeling
that
I
was
half
of
a
very
numerous
household.
I
was
not
in
the
heart
of
the
household,
I
was
merely
a
half
of
the
household,”
the
director
stated.

Spielberg
had
in
the

that
he
had
completely
loved
making
his

nicely
in
sure
elements,
which
is
the place

staff
additionally
shot
for

“The
solely
different
factor
we
did
was
we
took
out
air
conditioning
items,
took
out
satellite tv for pc
dishes
and
took
out
security
bars
on
home windows.
Because
at present,
New
York
has
security
bars
above
the
second
ground
and
we
had
to
take away
some
of
these.
Everything
else
is
genuine
to
the
interval
as a result of
New

nonetheless
is
in
character
with

felt

topics
and
emotions
concerned
with
the
topics
the place
it
would
be
very
pure
for
someone
who’s
born
talking
Spanish
to
go
into
Spanish

not

say
it
in
English.”
