Another reason I haven't been posting is that I'm doing another play. Acting in one, I mean, not directing.
I'm playing the role of Alice in You Can't Take It with You. It's a lead, and I play the only normal person in a family of weirdos. It's practically my autobiography.
Tonight one of the other actors gave me a great compliment. He said, "You're so good. It's amazing. You just have [Alice's] voice."
How cool is that? I said, "Naw, it's just a cold," because that is what I do. He's directed several plays for this theater, and he's won awards for acting himself, so I really appreciated his comments.
It's nice when someone who's not my mom--and therefore has no familial obligation--tells me I have talent. It makes my 16 hour days a little more bearable.
