choose wisely
so i say to pasi nurminen:

tomorrow, my lord: time goes on crutches 'til love have all his rites.

and she looks back at me like i make no sense (see right). this bill snakespeare stuff is hard.
last night i did my first performance as claudio. he is right and noble. it's a stretch.
i also came up with some very creative cuts to the script. chopping about a full minute off the running time. then adding it back on by missing an entrance.
the middle ground i want is affording the language to do a lot of the work, yet avoiding the lifeless talking heads stuff that loses people. theatricality mixed with intelligent banter. could we do it the way they do 'curb your enthusiasm'? is't possible? it'd be great? i'd like it?

cheers to that, and thanks for being one of the 15 people who saw it.
we canceled the last show.
one lady and her daughter. said she didn't want to make us do a show just for her. i dunno. i think it can be cool, but she may've made the right choice (she had one).
i haven't had an audition since september 13th.... one MONTH!
ARGH.

Well, that kinda sucks. But Sundays ANYwhere, much less Push Push...

Thank GOD for some v.o. things sans agents, and couple direct-call smaller jobs.

I wish I could see your show. Things have been slow at the ACME too. After an amazing run of Double Feature, we've had rather low attendance lately. And I haven't had an audition in two weeks. Fortunately I'm spending lots of time working on my cartoon software. So there's that.

We've had little to no houses either. I blame the moving pictures and the talkies. Before the talkies we had monologues and muggin to the audience and floozies...oh the floozies.

We should have been atheletes instead of actors. People love sports.
