Crunch Time

I have had no time lately. No time to sleep, no time to eat, no time for the gym, no time to see shows or friends or the new boyfriend. Three jobs and grad school applications are taking up my life. I somehow got it together and attended the RSP meeting last Tuesday night and, to my delight, got some work done AND was inspired by my RSP cohorts. They graciously helped me narrow down some monologue choices for grad school auditions. No judgment - just honest, helpful, supportive feedback. Now I am happy to report a solid comedic contemporary monologue in my pocket (and any female actor knows how difficult that is).

We then read Amerikan Mine by John Patrick Bray, which was thought-provoking and challenging. It had been a while since I'd read a play just for the joy of reading it; I've been scouring plays for monologues and little else.

So, thanks, Rising Sun, for making my week a little bit easier.

Back to the grind,
