A Hot Mess on a Warm Weekend

So big surprise. Things get a little busy and I slack on my blogging duties....

Friday was interesting. I had an email from a theater company saying, "You have an audition Friday at 10:30." That was it. Really charming. The guy's name sounded familiar, and I had a feeling my friend had warned me in the past about him. I text my friend and it confirmed my feeling. Not the greatest company to work with. I contemplated going to the audition, but I figured any opportunity is a good opportunity...so I went. It was fine. The sides were a little odd, but I read fine. He asked about my schedule and said I would hear that night about callbacks. I did get that phone call about callbacks being the next day, but in looking at the schedule it really didn't work with the project I'm already working on. So I said thank you, but I didn't think it would work. All was well...until Saturday morning when I was woken up by my phone ringing. It was the stage manager from this production explaining that I was expected at rehearsal thirty minutes ago and I wasn't there. Um, Huh? I called the number back and the mailbox was full. Swell. Called the assistant director and left a message attempting to explain the situation. About an hour or so later I got a text: "sorry for the confusion." Hmmm. I think I'm a bit glad that my schedule didn't work out this time. What a hot mess. ;)

The weekend was good. It was BEAUTIFUL out! I went to dinner on Friday - Chinese food with free boxed wine (Classy. Love that). Brunch and rehearsal Saturday. I learned a new lift that proves getting my ass off the floor in heels on a slick floor to be difficult. Sunday was more rehearsal for the Broadway show workshop. Upon leaving I ran into some friends, then I ran like a madwoman uptown to my first meeting of the Turtles.

I was feeling a little apprehensive since I still hadn't heard about the play festival. Three days is too many if you ask me, considering the urgency of the phone calls I'd received. Everything was "ASAP!" So much for that. The meeting did go well, though. Most everyone seems nice, and supportive. There appears to be a lot of projects coming along. I did feel better about things. We were also told that the festival was yet to be fully cast. Any day now...

And on to The Oscars! Well my living room, really, where I watched The Oscars. Loved it. Loved the show. Love Sandra Bullock, love Jeff Bridges, love Kathryn Bigelow (love that she beat James Cameron). Loved it. Went to bed late, but not for long...

flyering in the morning....
