Boy, am I busy. I went into Hollywood on Thursday to audition for a professional Shakespeare company. Imagine that -- getting paid to act Shakespeare. I made the callbacks. Today the callback audition went well. They were very complimentary and nice, but who knows if I'll get in.
At the end of the audition, a director asked, "Are you in Equity?"
"No," I said.
The female director next to him asked, "SAG?"
"That's hard to believe," said the woman.
Well, that was a nice compliment.
Whether I get into this company or not, I'll probably move to Hollywood this summer to begin looking for acting work. Much of an actor's life is tedious -- sitting around on a movie set all day to say, "They went thataway." But then, my day job in radio is tedious, so I might as well do tedious acting work and get paid for it.
I'll have to do TV and movie work for money, but my first love will always be classical acting on stage.
