I’ve seen a lot of great stuff over the past few days, and that much talent puts me in a challenging place. I know that a wait like this is tough, and reducing/eliminating that for us is extremely important, especially with exams coming up.
1. If you have questions, please come see me as we sort out the combination. I’ll give as much of an answer as possible. The only reason we ever keep our cards close to the vest is to keep from disappointing people if plans-in-pencil change.
2. I may need to see a few more people in a few more combinations. The challenge is to do that without being disrupting your exam schedule.
3. If you have the time, drop me a quick e-mail letting me know what — if any — time you have on Friday or even early next week to check in if needed. Maybe read a piece or two. No obligation on this for you.
However, and I cannot emphasize this enough, exams and preparing for them comes first.
We may come up with a plan very quickly.
4. Finally, think of what you would do that would be unique and fun with ANY of the parts. Have a game plan. The Cherry Orchard cast jotted down some notes prior to casting, and reading those helped me know the actors and make informed decisions. Again, no obligation or expectation. This is THE busy time of the year. But if you want to, I’d be happy to read it.
Right now, my top job is to create the basis for a great show with outstanding — and very individual — elements.
Please feel free to drop me an e-mail, text, visit, share ideas, ask questions, etc. Sharing ideas is the first step to building a great show, and I’d be thrilled to see you… if you have time/interest.
I really appreciate everything you do.
(And exams come first.)
