First draft of new musical complete

Finished the first draft of Puzzle House Blues today, the script for the new musical I've been co-writing. I've been averaging about a scene a week since I started, and now the first rough draft is complete. I'm not sure how happy I am with it, but the push to finish burnt me out so I'm not even attempting to evaluate it right now.

I am having people over for dinner to read it to me and Troy, my collaborator, on Thursday. I would like to have a second, at least somewhat more polished draft ready by then. The current one is fairly bare-bones, as is typical of my writing when I am pushing for completeness. But I've found it serves me best when I have SOMETHING done, that I can go back and edit later, than by perfectionist lingering the first time around.

We've started the lyrics, but as I've been trying to nail the script, I haven't contributed much to that. After the second draft exists, though, I will have to dive in and see if my poetry skills have atrophied too much.
