Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock.jpgGotham’s Donal Logue: “Rehearsal was like an answer to my prayers…”

Over the last two years, I had the (absolute) luxury problem of having a number of jobs that overlapped each other. The work was very challenging and I was inundated with dialects to (attempt!) to master and dialogue to memorize. I was doing a show called Copper at the same time as Sons of Anarchy and about to start Vikings. In fact, there was a five week period in 2013 where I had nine episodes of those three series to film in less than five weeks. A friend told me about “Rehearsal” and it was like an answer to my prayers. I would highlight the script, record the dialogue (everyone’s lines) and listen to the scenes over and over. In my car, on set- wherever- Rehearsal was my constant companion.

I always feel that as an actor, my only defense against any scenario is preparation. Especially when I am showing up in high pressure situations on high profile projects. I don’t care how experienced you may be, there is always a feeling of being the new kid on campus. There is no better way to assure your new cast mates you can handle the situation than being off book and ready to throw down. This app is an incredible tool for us actors. Before I would record voice memos, but Rehearsal loops the scenes and allows me to add notes to the script.

Thanks David for such a useful tool.

Sincerely, Donal Logue

Some users have reported not being able to record once they upgrade to iOS 7 or 8. To fix this:

1. Go to Settings >> Privacy >> Microphone
2. Turn on Rehearsal’s option to allow the microphone to be accessed.

This app is amazing. I was shooting Thor, and thought I’d be running around the desert all day doing an action sequence. They threw a 3 page dialog scene at us first thing that morning, and I was off book and ready to go by the time I was out of the makeup chair. BUY THIS APP.

— Clark Gregg [Iron Man, The Avengers, Agents of SHIELD, The New Adventures of Old Christine]

I love your app! It’s a no brainer for me as I can literally testify to using it on every episode so far on the show. I highlight, blackout and record the scenes. I learn them in no time at all. Just fantastic. A must for any actor with an I pad or I phone! Many congrats on this great product. I’m spreading the word around town.

— Ioan Gruffudd [Ringer (The CW), The Fantastic Four, Horrible Bosses]

Your Rehearsal App is helping me so much…..I got the lead in a Lowes Industrial and have to memorize so many lines in just a few days…thanks again for this great acting tool.

— Gary Moore

I had just moved house and was living out of boxes, and had no broadband as it was yet to be connected. So of course that is when I get a phone call from a commercial radio producer asking if I would do a quick voice test for a series of radio ads for a UK national travel agent. I recorded some sample reads on my home studio (after unpacking it – I had literally just moved) and then put the file on a memory stick and trooped off with my netbook to a nearby cafe to use their wifi – but technology conspired against me in so many ways that two hours later the producer still did not have my audition in his in-box. And then I remembered the Rehearsal app on my iphone. So I emailed the script to the app, and read it into the iPhone and sent it off – and 20 mins later he rang up to say that the client had approved my voice. This gave me enough time to get my iPhone approved as a tethering connection so that the following day I could record the ads in my studio and email them off, but without the Rehearsal app I would not have got the gig in the first place. And after all the kerfuffle and stress of trying to do things the “normal” way – it was so easy to just speak and email!

Having used it successfully for a voice audition I now have absolute confidence that if I am asked for a voice test again, then that is how I will do it, wherever I am at the time.

— Louise Gummer, London UK

Loving the app. I have had a succession of big auditions and lots of text to learn in a short period of time. The app helped me tremendously! It also helps me focus in the waiting room – just drilling the scenes over and over. As a result I felt confident and fully prepared – booked both my gigs. In Plain Sight and the new ABC series Scoundrels. Going to use it to prepare for both shoots as well.

— Kathryn Smith McGlynn

I am very pleased with the results of using ‘Rehearsal’ so far. It is a powerful tool in preparing for auditions, or for days of work, especially when I am pressed for time. It is easy to use and I have no doubt that as it evolves, it will be a part of my work process for a long time.

— John Carroll Lynch [Shutter Island, Fargo, The Drew Carey Show]

Just so you know, I used Rehearsal for a short workshop scene that I had to do on Saturday. I was teching a show all week and barely had any time to rehearse the script aside from listening to it in the Rehearsal app and looking at the words on my iPhone in between tech stuff. Well, you’re program is pretty cool, because I learned my lines very easily and even though I felt like I’d barely done anything to prepare for the workshop the CD commented, “That was lovely and wonderful! I don’t need to re-direct you.” I guess all the “little bits of time” added up and Rehearsal helped me keep the script handy for all those “little bits of time.”

— Amy Schloerb

By using this app I was able to study my lines before I got on stage to perfom. I was driving to Birmingham, AL and on the way to my show I was able to study while driving by playing back the sene. This app so worth having and I am glad I have it. I am a upcoming actor and the rehearsal app is the way to go for even the new actors that are just starting.

— Nic Rabun

I love my Rehearsal app! I’m a Recording artist and voice over talent. I record on a daily basis and the reazon why I wanted Rehearsal in my I PAD is because I don’t need to use paper! And I love to be green. I figure that I can save a lot of trees and a lot of ink!! When I’m singing or Dubbing I take it with me and I love it for all it can do for me! I will recomend all the studios where I go to get the I pads with this application for everyone that work in that field like me 😉 so WE all can help to save the planet! Thank you so much for making my life A LOT easier!!

    I really like this app! Two things would make it better for me… 1) Bookmarks so that we can jump to a specified spot and 2) easier moving through pages. Time consuming to go to page 99 to rehearse a scene if you are on page 1.


  2. Comment by David H. Lawrence XVII — October 26, 2012 @ 12:14 pm

    We got you covered in the next rev. Thanks for the suggestions!

    Quick note: the faster you scroll pages in the app, the faster you’ll get to the page you want – it’s accelerated based on how quickly you swipe.


  3. Comment by Brent Spencer — November 8, 2012 @ 7:57 am

    I love the app. Rehearsing Toby Belch for a production of Twelfth Night, and the app is making that process much easier. The blackout feature is genius! I second the call for bookmarks and a pause button. But even without these features, it’s a very useful app that’s making my acting life much easier.

  4. Comment by Elise — November 14, 2012 @ 9:33 pm

    Sounds great…but really frustrating that once again another great app/product is only for iPhone users. I couldn’t even get a discount on my breaks at Break Master unless I showed them I had an iPhone…sends a message that only Apple users are welcome or worthy. It’s strange how it seems Apple has convinced almost everyone they have to use only their phone/tablet….and it seems every other company has followed by assuming everyone has one in their marketing, and if you don’t something is wrong….actually it makes me not want to buy an iPhone or any Apple product…please consider a similar app for android…everyone is not a part of the Apple cult….Thx

  5. Comment by David H. Lawrence XVII — November 14, 2012 @ 9:59 pm

    Elise (sorry for calling you Maya in the personal version of this reply that I sent to you via email),

    I appreciate you writing.

    Actually it’s far worse than you think – the fact that the Android market is so fraught with piracy (by some accounts, over 95% stolen as opposed to paid for), makes me not want to enter that marketplace. It would cost me twice as much to develop for that market than I’ve paid (and am paying – version 3 is under development) to develop for iOS, and for 1/20th the possible income.

    In addition, Android devices are built around Java, which is notoriously clunky when it comes to handling audio. Since Rehearsal is built around the smooth recording and playback of audio, that is a big issue.

    And finally, Rehearsal is designed for professional actors, and the performance industry has clearly settled on Apple devices for their day to day work. Most of the professional apps that crew and cast use are iOS only, because those are the devices that work best for what we need.

    There’s no conspiracy theory supported by an “Apple cult” here – it just makes the best business sense for me given my limited resources.

    If things ever change, I’ll be right there with a version for ‘droid users. Until then, I need to stay profitable.

    I thank you again for your comments.


  6. Comment by Elise — November 27, 2012 @ 10:10 am

    Hi David…Maya is fine. Elise is my middle name. I use it in unfamiliar teritorry ;-).

    I have to tell anyone thinking about getting Rehearsal…GET IT!!! David was so kind in responding to my “Apple Cult” comment and really went beyond required customer service by explaining to me why Rehearsal is only available for Apple products. It made a lot of since and he never tried to convince me to get an iPhone…just gave me options. Well, I’m happy to say I’m a part of that “cult” now. Rehearsal has been a life saver in helping me memorize and become comfortable with medical terminology for my last role. This is a tool that can increase your confidence at auditions. I believe in, most cases, being “off book” is a must these days.

    Will this work on the ipad mini?

  8. Comment by David H. Lawrence XVII — December 22, 2012 @ 4:08 am

    Yes – in fact, the iPad Mini is the device I find myself doing most of my work on. Enjoy!


  9. Comment by Leigh Dillon — February 2, 2013 @ 6:47 am

    I got an “Update to 2.5.0” notification on my iPad (Version 6.0.1). I clicked on “Install” and my Rehearsal 2 looks like a gray square with a black updating line for over an hour. I keep getting a notification that it is unable to update at this time, but whether I choose the “Retry” or “Cancel” doesn’t matter. I’m stuck with the useless gray square. I wish I could just go back to the previous version because I need my scripts and work today! I’m away from home & office. My Rehearsal 2 has my scripts & notes on it. I’m stuck. What do you recommend. I don’t want to uninstall because I don’t want to lose everything. Thanks for your help!

  10. Comment by David H. Lawrence XVII — February 3, 2013 @ 11:33 am


    Sounds like the connection between your device and the App Store was somehow disconnected.

    Try this:

    Establish a connection again, then in the App Store app, tap Updates, and choose Purchased. Then, find Rehearsal in that list, and tap in the cloud icon to re-download the update.

    That should take care if it.


  11. Comment by Leigh Dillon — February 3, 2013 @ 6:10 am

    FYI folks: I did not have to reinstall and did not lose any scripts. In a few hours the app again gave me the option to retry and it downloaded perfectly. Btw, David Lawrence emailed me quickly with suggestions. Great guy! Rehearsal 2 is my favorite app for working on scripts. Leigh

  12. Comment by Graham — February 8, 2013 @ 11:53 am

    Hi – I may have missed a reference to this in the comments – but, having started using ths splendid app once again – this time for quite long scenes that I have recorded, a pause button would be perfect so that one may go over and over a certain line until it s correct and then carry on with the scene. I am sure this must have already been suggested, but I was wondering if this was a feature that we can look forward to in version 3…

  13. Comment by David H. Lawrence XVII — February 8, 2013 @ 12:00 pm

    Hopefully, you’re just talking about technically correct – the words in the right order and the timing generally correct – as I advise that you not put any performance on your lines at all, and that you speak them softer than your scene partner’s lines, just so they’re there for you should you need them, but not influencing you every time you say your lines to say them that way. I coach people to add performance as it happens – as they are learning their lines, things will arrive, and the more you work with your lines, the more you’ll discover and have available to you when you make your primary and alternate choices for the audition or work. I always find that nuances happen even in the performance itself – and they are not predetermined from the way I’ve recorded my lines in Rehearsal.

    Hope this helps. And yes, we are looking at pause capabilities.


  14. Comment by Graham — February 8, 2013 @ 1:22 pm

    Oh yes, I’ve done what you suggest with the recording – quiet delivery of one’s own lines etc. That works perfectly. It’s just that in the early stages when one is doing basic line learning, a pause button would be very helpful. Otherwise at the moment one has to struggle through the whole Scene without the opportunity to work on and correct individual lines, or, alternatively, stop the scene and start from the beginning again, which can be frustrating – in particular, I am finding, with a long scene from a play, say. I suppose different actors like to work in different ways, and for me, at least, a pause facility would be most useful.
    Thanks for replying – and I hope you do include a pause facility in the next version!

  15. Comment by David H. Lawrence XVII — February 8, 2013 @ 1:48 pm

    Wait – are you talking about playback? You can always grab the round progress button on the playback time line and rewind back or fast forward as far as you want in a scene, and simply tapping and holding on that button pauses it. I thought you were talking about when you were recording the lines.

    Hope this helps.


  16. Comment by readingmyscript — March 5, 2013 @ 10:13 pm

    The application does not fuction as expected in the following: The application forces users to create an account with the developer; barring all imports of PDF documents from the iOS “Open in…” fuction and instead presents the solution of a linked email address to which users can send their scripts to later download to the device. This is not only a convoluted process but it also presents a confidentiality and copyright issue as sensitive materials now have to triangulate through the developer email service. Tap areas on the homescreen buttons are grossly inaccurate. PDF editing features a rudimentary button layout and entirely vague icons. Highlighting does not respond to upward or downward motions and instead scrolls in those directions. Using the draw tool locks the view of the script and prohibits any multi-touch gestures to scroll the document. There is no undo or redo function whatsoever. Audio recordings have no way of pausing and can only be selected by exiting the PDF and selecting the specific recording and entering the document view again. Finally, no documents, texts, highlights, pictures, audio or video recordings can be exported from the application making it useless for archiving or compiling information. On a last note I am requesting a full refund for this misleading, overpriced, and underdeveloped application. As an acting student I cannot afford to be duped of $20 and as so I kindly ask you to please make an exception to your terms of purchase. Thank you for understanding.

  17. Comment by David H. Lawrence XVII — March 6, 2013 @ 12:14 am

    You wrote (with my responses inline – please read this all the way to the bottom, where I have some important advice for you):

    “…The application does not fuction as expected in the following: The application forces users to create an account with the developer; barring all imports of PDF documents from the iOS “Open in…” fuction and instead presents the solution of a linked email address to which users can send their scripts to later download to the device. This is not only a convoluted process but it also presents a confidentiality and copyright issue as sensitive materials now have to triangulate through the developer email service…”

    The “Open in…” function actually works just the way you expect. I’m sorry you didn’t catch that in the manual. Just tap and hold on the PDF attachment icon in any email you’ve received, and Rehearsal 2 will be one of the choices you can open your PDF in.

    And just so you know, the scripts that are emailed to our server are encrypted with hidden public-private key encryption and only live on the server in encrypted form. They are only decrypted once they are delivered to the user’s device. We husband the production community’s precious scripts with even more care than is shown sending a PDF to you in the clear in the first place.

    “…Tap areas on the homescreen buttons are grossly inaccurate…”

    Not sure what you’re trying to tap on that is inaccurate, but they work just fine for everyone else. And just for grins, I went to my iPhone 4s, my iPhone 5, my iPad (first gen), my iPad (2nd gen), my new iPad, my iPad mini and my iPod Touch, and all of the buttons highlight and react perfectly, on all of the home screens, on all of the devices.

    “…PDF editing features a rudimentary button layout and entirely vague icons. Highlighting does not respond to upward or downward motions and instead scrolls in those directions…”

    Again, you haven’t read the manual (again, accessible via the Help button on the main menu) which describes all functions available from the icons on the toolbar.

    Highlighting in the real world occurs when you pick up a highlighter, and stroke over your lines on a paper script from left to right, or right to left. That’s exactly what happens with Rehearsal.

    Locking the script to prevent highlighting via up and down motions is also by design – because we don’t want you to highlight in vertical strokes, since no scripts are printed that way – we want you to be able to move to your next set of lines.

    “…Using the draw tool locks the view of the script and prohibits any multi-touch gestures to scroll the document…”

    And that is by design. If you want to draw (or write something) with the Scribble tool, do so. If you want to scroll around, disengage the Scribble tool. Keeping the page still so you can draw is pretty much essential – like you do when you hold a piece of paper with one hand to stop it from moving while you draw on it with another.

    “…There is no undo or redo function whatsoever…”

    Again, I’m sorry you didn’t notice the eraser icon (and apparently, didn’t read the manual or watch the built-in help videos) on how it works. Any highlights, beat marks, scribbles or placed comments can easily be moved, removed or deleted.

    “…Audio recordings have no way of pausing and can only be selected by exiting the
    PDF and selecting the specific recording and entering the document view again…”

    Audio can be paused. Simply tap and hold on the progress button. You can also slide that button backward or forward to move to that portion of the script, very handy for when you go up on a line and want to repeat what you’ve just heard, or jump to a later moment in a scene. Oh, and the script moves too, so you can see where you’re going.

    “…Finally, no documents, texts, highlights, pictures, audio or video recordings can be exported from the application making it useless for archiving or compiling information…”

    That’s true. And that will be changing with the next rev of the app, because we’ve finally proven to the studios and networks that we work with that the app isn’t dangerous – they wanted us not to include those functions because they were concerned that the app could be used to distribute their copyrighted material. Rehearsal 3 will include a file format in which not only marked up scripts can be synched between devices and your work can be archived, but that file format will include some features that even your complaint didn’t contemplate.

    “On a last note I am requesting a full refund for this misleading, overpriced, and underdeveloped application. As an acting student I cannot afford to be duped of $20 and as so I kindly ask you to please make an exception to your terms of purchase. Thank you for understanding.”

    Feel free to talk to Apple about that – they’re the ones who issue refunds. But before you do, you might want to take a look at how professional actors use the app. Here’s a great example: the Emmy-nominated actress, Julianna Margulies, the star of CBS’ The Good Wife, seems to be able to use the app day in and day out without any of your difficulties. Watch this video as she shares her feelings with fellow nominees Emmy Rossum, Claire Danes (who also uses the app now), January Jones (who also uses the app now), Kyra Sedgwick and others:

    http://rehearsaltheapp.com/thr-video (she starts raving about Rehearsal about 6:30 in)

    Hope this helps.

    And here’s something else that’s really, really important. I want you to read the following carefully.

    You thanked me for my understanding, and the truth is, I understand you all too well.

    In the future, you might want to rethink the incredibly arrogant attitude and approach you’ve employed with this message. That won’t serve you well at all, should you actually attempt to have a career in the performance business.

    Producers want to hire actors that are collegial, friendly, and team players – that are helpful to the production. if you have a complaint about something, you might want to ask questions, seek advice, and get help from a position of knowledge rather than making incomplete and inaccurate statements. You got all your facts wrong here, you came at me like a steam roller, and yet, I’m happy to help you either way.

    But the production and casting community aren’t going to be as charitable if you choose to keep that up. You may think that the approach you took with this message to me was effective – I can assure you it was not. Should you survive the ivory tower of your student life and actually try to have a professional acting career, it would be suicide to act that way, despite what your ineffective training in discipline and manners have led you to believe.

    I certainly don’t expect you to hear that advice easily – it should feel like a stinging slap on the face. It was meant to feel that way. But I certainly hope you heed it.

    Just some words of advice from an actor who actually makes his living as an actor.

    If you have any further comments or questions, please try to be nicer about making them and asking them. As I said, I’m happy to help you.


  18. Comment by Mike Burnie — March 17, 2013 @ 6:11 am

    Hi Peops. Enjoying your app: it’s really quite intuitive and I’ve managed to find my way around quite well so far 🙂

    Please can I make two suggestions for future mods:

    (1) Please can you introduce a PAUSE facility so that it isn’t necessary to keep a finger on the progress bar while rehearsing in order to achieve a pause. It would be a really useful feature if you could manage it, and would save ‘scrubbing’ through to where I think might be the right place. Sometimes you might not want to start all over again if you’ve had to put the iPad down to answer the phone or the door. A quick press to pause and press to unpause would be fantastic.

    (2) I really like the reaveal lines feature where you can tap and hold to reaveal the lines when they are blanked out. Would it be possible to enable this while in rehearsal mode? or does it work that way already and I’m doing something wrong?


  19. Comment by David H. Lawrence XVII — March 17, 2013 @ 8:33 am


    Thanks for writing!

    We’re already working on (1) for version 3, and we’ll put (2) in the suggestion queue for other features to add to version 3. Tapping and holding while the script is moving would seem to indicate that you want to pause rather than reveal, but let’s see what we can do.

    Again, thanks!


  20. Comment by Lena — March 28, 2013 @ 8:55 am

    David, I’ve been meaning to post a note thanking you for your time helping me with the “scrolling” function of the audio recordings. Once you explained to me how it works and I recorded the script in its original PDF size (i.e., I didn’t enlarge the font), I haven’t had any more problems. Most of all, I really appreciated your willingness to actually talk me through the process–via a phone call. That was very kind of you! Take care–and thanks again.

  21. Comment by Jayson Lee — April 7, 2013 @ 5:08 pm

    A shame that you believe that the entertainment industry is strictly Apple — as a working actor/director, I find that not to be true at all. In fact, doing an informal survey on set, I find the majority of phones to be Android, a handful of Blackberrys, and only one or two iPhones. Android is actually a far superior operating system — not sure where you get that it’s all Java-based — and I’m sad that there isn’t a comparable app to yours on the market. I don’t understand the piracy issue — but then again, I’ve never NOT paid for an app — but I see why it would be prohibitive for you.

    In any event, best wishes for the continuing development and success of the app. Here’s hoping you’ll reconsider your Android thoughts…


  22. Comment by David H. Lawrence XVII — April 7, 2013 @ 7:00 pm


    I really appreciate you writing. I don’t think I ever said it was strictly apple, although I certainly have used words like “predominately” and “overwhelmingly” as that has been, and continues to be my experience, especially with professional apps. I’ve been doing the same informal surveying on sets, and while our results haven’t been the same, I certainly see more actors using Android phones. At the same time, I see people using more and more iPads, so…

    I do watch the market carefully. If google would just police the stack better, I’d be more apt to consider it. And a question: what is android based on if not Java? The apps are written in Java, and the audio routines are all Java based. The original programming was in C and C++, but with a Java construct and the path to apps via Java.

    Again, thank you, and I hope to work with you someday!


  23. Comment by Dave — April 15, 2013 @ 9:38 am

    Not sure what I’ve done wrong here, but suddenly I can’t open new scripts in Rehearsal 2. I get a “PDF Decryption Failed” error. Updated to the latest, uninstalled/reinstalled, etc. This is happening on multiple PDFs. Any ideas?

  24. Comment by Dave — April 15, 2013 @ 3:24 pm

    Thanks for your help on the PDF decryption issue – The app is working perfectly again! And also thanks for the amazingly fast and friendly support!

  25. Comment by Jamie Beamish — June 27, 2013 @ 11:52 pm

    Hi David,

    Is it possible for rehearsal to remember the last script page read when you open the app or have I missed something? I currently use rehearsal for learning lines but need to use goodreader when just reading scripts. It’d be great to use rehearsal for both. A search function would be excellent too to be able to find your character 🙂

    Any timescale on the new version coming out? Looking forward to the improvements and new features.


    Jamie Beamish

  26. Comment by David H. Lawrence XVII — June 28, 2013 @ 12:48 pm

    We are planning a bookmark function in version 3. As noted below, search is not on our radar, as most scripts are marked up scans of scripts (CD notes, starts, stops, x-d out scenes etc) – but it may sneak in if we can figure out how to discern text PDFs from graphic PDF’s (not so easy). For now, you’ll just have to hunker down and read your script to find your character. 🙂

    Does the app work on the new iOS 7 platform? Would love to know before purchasing.

    It doesn’t work on MacOS, no. The app is designed to work anywhere – and we don’t see a lot of actors lugging around a MacBook Pro on stage or on set. Whereas, you can “lug” around your mobile device anywhere.

    Good Day,

    Am considering purchasing app but have a question; my needs would include preparing an audition while driving….I’ve seen in the review section actors saying this is possible. How???
    How do I operate the recorded portion while driving, i.e. stop, repeat, fast forward….all operations seem to require hand control while at the same time I’m driving….I don’t understand how this is possible…currently am using a tape recoreder app on my phone and works fine when sitting home on my couch, so, what’s the difference between this and your app…..please advise as soon as possible….Since I live 2 States away from most of the work I book requiring travel time I want to Thank you for your research and development on a tool that is possibly extremely valuable to us . . . . Cheers Daniel

    I wouldn’t use any of the playback controls while driving – just let your recorded scenes play. Over and over. And over.

    We’ve been working on localizing Pro to both Espanol and Brazilian Portuguese. Watch for that update soon! But know that that’s only for the dialog boxes. The app itself doesn’t need to be localized for any language – thousands of non-English speaking actors use the app every day, as their scripts are in the language they need.
