to be on book


Senior Member
hi there again!

"We're opening Hamlet next week, but some main characters are still on book"

Any idea what this means? Are they still learning their roles?

    This means that they are still learning their lines. They have to carry the script with them during rehearsal because they have not yet memorized the lines or blocking.
