So now this great experiment has officially begun.
That was by far the most outrageous and fast-paced audition I have ever been a part of. For those of you who weren't there, it went something like this:
Fourteen actors and one patient stage manager gathered together on the top floor of the library at Ten 'o Clock. Some had prepared sides, others had not. Some were familiar with the text, some were not. Everyone was given a chance to read and then we voted. And voted again.
When the dust settled, we had a cast.
The process was both democratic and anarchical. A strange blend of co-operation, competition, and concession.
And boy was it entertaining.
If we can be just half that interesting when we get on stage, we'll have a fantastic show on our hands.
