And I don't know if it was that drug or the new blood pressure meds, but I've been walking around all day feeling like a zombie. Okay, part of that was meetings from 9 am - 12:30 and from 3-3:45.
Anyway, now feeling awake enough to see Hello Dolly at
Way back last year the director was kind enough to let me audition at callbacks (I was out of town during auditions) and I went through a strenuous dance set which I did not enjoy at all, but I was pretty much the best singer there. I was not considered for the leading role, which was the only part I wanted, and I later found out it went to a very talented man who had also gotten the part I wanted in 1776 a couple of years before with the same director (but different company). During callbacks for Dolly, they stressed how much dancing the men's ensemble did, so I was very surprised when they offered me an ensemble part. I declined, because I am just not in that kind of shape. As it turned out, even if I had accepted I would have had to bail out of the show when my mother got sick, so Fate or something like it may be at work here.So I'll see the show tonight, and am expecting a good time. I'm sure I will know at least half the cast.
