A Mamacita with a Bone to Pick

Some more catching up. Last week was the Broadway workshop presentation for the producers. In a word, it went: quickly. We rehearsed for an hour before. Got all make-uped with my mamacita red lips and eyeliner. Slicked my hair back and busted out snaps all over the place to get into character. We went down to the studio and waited to go in. Once inside it took a quick 5 min of dancing and we were done. We danced well. It felt fine. But not much feedback to go on. The choreographer seemed happy. But really, I don't have a handle on how it went. I felt good about the performance, but who knows?

I had another rehearsal for the play festival. I waited around for another half hour for the damn rehearsal to start. I'm losing my patience, I have to tell you. I have to be off book by tomorrow, so we'll see how that goes. It's hard going off book with having so little rehearsal. Our first run through is next Friday and we only have one rehearsal scheduled between now and then. OMG.

I did some flyering. The weather was beautiful, so it wasn't so bad. I also worked a St. Patrick's Day party that was quite the scene. It was a drunken mess. I'm hoping to make some money this week. My bank account is a little scary. And depressing. I heard from the beer promo company, so I hope that I get some work with them soon. The money would be great.

I tried to get prints of my headshots, but that's proving to be another GIANT headache. I went borderless because I find borders distracting. Period. End of that discussion. I went to Precision because I could preview my order online. That's proving to be a mistake I think. I went to look at the test prints and they look like shit. I'm starting out with two: the theatrical one in black and the character one in white. The black one was so dark that I didn't stand out from the background and the white one was red and blurry. I spoke with the owner and he talked and talked and talked and talked....but never actually SAID anything. He even went as far to say that my headshot won't get me the job, so it doesn't really matter. That my audition is really more important. I wanted to punch the man in the face. If it doesn't matter, why do you have a job Mr. Precision Photo???!!! I got a call from them the next day and I talked with another man. Apparently the guy I talked to the night before was the owner. Haha! The new guy seems pretty helpful, but I don't know what I'm going to do. I plan to take the prints to Reproductions and see what they can do for me. This is a mess. If my own inkjet can produce a better product, we have a problem. Or well, Precision Photos has a problem.

That's all for now. I'm feeling a little overwhelmed with my brain going in so many directions at once. And no matter how much I'm doing, I feel like I should be doing more. It's never ending.

  1. Alls I'm a gonna say is that I haven't had a problem with reproductions thus far. I think they're the biggest and best known, but for a reason, you know?
