Hello all, it's been far too long since I last posted something, and I realized that everything between "Hedwig" and now has just been a blur. So, in this moment that I have reclaimed my sanity I figured I should play some catch up. I am stage managing for our next production "By the Way, Meet Vera Stark", I am knee deep in reading scripts for nuVoices (the play festival), and I am on the lookout for audition opportunities. There . . . that's it. I'm sure I've done a lot more, but lets be honest. No one wants to know about how many times I clean my apartment this month, or how many dishes I can fit in my dishwasher and still get them all clean (it's not as many as I'd like). About the only two things worth mentioning are: 1. I did a fun promo video for "Hedwig" which you can see below.
And 2. Myself, and others, have come to the realization that the opportunities for female actress below the age of 25 in theatre are abysmal. I thought it was just me, but talking to a friend yesterday confirmed my suspicions that indeed I was not alone, and also it's not just happening where I am in a smaller city, but in larger cities too. That's not saying there is no work, however I get the feeling that there is a larger number of younger actress competing for a small number of roles. On the flip side there are less women in the 30s who stuck with it and more roles in that age range. Guess we all knew this was coming really when we were told that the film and television market was all about young people. On the up side, if we still are in the business by the time we are 50, the roles will just fall into our laps. So here's with sticking with it!
