So I auditioned for The Lady's Not For Burning today. I must say, I did a freaking fantastic job. The director has been after me for one particular role for quite some time now, but I managed to only read him once the entire audition. I ended up reading for a total of four different roles (three if you don't include the one guy I read briefly at the end of the audition). I nailed every character, as far as I'm concerned.
As is usual in theatre auditions, there were more women than men, so the guys were jumping from partner to partner, myself included. This was fine by me, as I got to read with my friend Kelleye (who I hope gets a part; I thought she read well, but I only saw her once or twice). The thing that me really happy, though, as that one of the girls there (who was incredibly cute; she had the most beautiful blue eyes... uh, anyway...) specifically asked to read with me. This wasn't a casual "hey, can you go over this scene with me" type question; this was a grab-my-arm-and-look-me-in-the-eye request. How could I say no? To make things even better, she apologized for asking me (Why? Who knows?), saying that she just really wanted a good actor to read against. When a cute girl is saying that you're a good actor... well, it just gets you all warm and fuzzy inside. :)
Auditions will continue tomorrow, and I'll be going just so they have more bodies to read against the women. The director was telling me that he's still not even half-way to casting the show; however, he could be swamped tomorrow, so no point in worrying about it now. Hell, maybe Cassie will show up again tomorrow. ;)Posted by Eric at August 21, 2005 09:03 PM
