Tonight is the first night of four nights of auditions for THE BEST MAN. I am VERY excited. I'm going to get a chance to meet a lot of Actor's I don't know and begin the process of creating this new production "world." Hopefully they will all be channeling Gore Vidal and we can find a great cast.
I've spent a fair amount of time looking at the resumes - what shows have they done before, what parts, at which theaters. Who have they studied with, have they studied. I always hated the picture and resume process. No matter what you had done, it never seemed quite right, or enough, or really expressed who you are as an Artist.
But this one is not about me.... it is now a matter of finding the right Actor for each of the parts and making the chemistry of the mix into something we can all be really proud of. God I hope it goes well.
