Hi, Julie.  No comment too silly, no idea too weird.  :-)  That's us.

We certainly would want you to have a radio handy during rehearsal, 
so that we can re-cue you without yelling.   That's highly beneficial.

There was a further flight-of-fancy discussion involving in-show 
earpiece (would you believe... I can bring one of those neato devices 
with the clear tube like TV anchors and spooks use.   Works with 
almost any hairdo).

While I suspect that's not going to be an idea to which you would 
subscribe, it's something that we can discuss and determine
