Since I've been in Atlanta, I've longed for a part that could really, truly be considered a lead. Now that I have it, I'm not quite sure what to do with it.
I'm joking, obviously, but I will say that the short rehearsal period for reasons to be pretty is grinding me down a bit. I'm just lucky that I've got a dedicated group of folks working on this with me to help stay on the right track.
Speaking of which, there's all sorts of stuff out there about us. Curt Holman gave us some press in his Creative Loafing blog along with another few writeups that are coming our way shortly. I'm very happy and lucky to get in with a company like this on the ground floor. Go buy some tickets.
I will be making a return to The Shakespeare Tavern stage. Keep your eyes open in Midsummer Night's Dream for me. I'll be the one being a total jerk to a girl who really likes me.
Things are heating up. I've got solid work through October, which is such a blessing. Here's hoping one or two more things can break my way and help me finish out this year right.
I said that this year HAD to be better than last year. At this point last year, I had finished up Hamlet at the Tavern, and Spreading It Around at Stage Door Players. I didn't even know about Middle School The Musical. Those were all great situations to be in, but that was it. Three shows. This year, I had a nice long run with And Then They Came For Me, and I've got four shows that haven't even opened yet. When it rains, it pours. Let's just hope that I can keep it flowing.
The last paragraph had a couple of really labored metaphors. Whatever. I'm not sleeping well. My head has too many lines in it.
Very, very thankful to have such a problem.
