but i actually miss being in rehearsal.
i miss sweeping, making phone calls, and running around the PAC like a crazy person, and not having any time or food, i miss taking crazy requests from directors and dealing with even crazier actors that i call my pals.
most of all, with not working and not really having to try to succeed academically here, i miss being part of a process, even in the tiniest of ways, of making something creative and new. i can’t wait to dive back in this summer.
tipsy emailing record labels asking for internships. let’s see where that gets me. lolz.
but i actually kinda want to settle for bard this summer. that is if i get it.
first bard audition notice just went out. it mad me sadder than i thought it would. but the dates are pretty late so i may be able to catch the second show of the semester which is happy times.
and it was pretty swell. it was really awkward because it was Asuncion written by Jesse Eisenberg, and the only reason I went if because my super fan girl of a sister got tickets for her birthday and her friend bailed last minute.
it would seem as though Mr. Eisenberg typecasted himself for this one. writing an awkward dude then choosing to play the awkward dude. i think i would have found it funnier if i did not find anxiety to induce my anxiety, so it took a while for me to be comfortable watching that amount of awkward 30 feet in front of me. but it was well written, not innovative or anything really, but a little bit more than decent. i think the main draw was him and the nerdy guy from national treasure. the real star was the title character who stole the show, she was amazing, Camille Mana, killed it.
the absolute best part of the show was the house music. so yea…..

“I know you’re dumb, but please take pity on the smart people that have to deal with you.”
wisdom from me to you.
from an sm/psm/pm about being in stage blacks never fails to be super awkward.
usually a subject line like: reminder wear blacks! come in blacks!
today it was just blacks!!!
and a curt reminder to wear black clothes.
p.s. a set designer once told me i was too white to work backstage. as in too pale. she was cray cray
p.p.s. can you put post scripts in blog posts?
