Just got cast in "Don Pedro De La Cebolla" for Royal family Productions. I get to play a Spanish lawyer named Don Miguel San Isidoro.
double rehearsals for "Flight of The Ibis" reading and "Asylum" productions went well. It's always tough the first few days of rehearsals. You feel like you don't know anything. It's especially hard when you're juggling two plays at once, but I can't complain. I mean I'm working at my craft and meeting new colleagues. It's been a nice year, work wise. It seems that every month I've been involved in some kind of theatrical project whether it was plays that I had written that were being staged read, work-shopped or produced or acting in plays, readings and workshops. Money-wise, well that's a whole other story. I'm surviving which I guess puts me in te same boat as other Americans. Ah yes the theatre life for me.
