Just got an email from a local director who wants me for the part in a play she's doing. It's about four jazz musicians if I've caught it correctly. I'm thrilled!
I read for a part in "Three Days of Rain" which she directed last season and lost the part on a technicality. She cast a 23 year old for the role which needed to be me older sister. No way I'm passing for 21. I loved that script and enjoyed watching the performance.
Afterwards I was glad I wasn't chosen. The guy who took my place had a huge amount of lines to learn and I just didn't have the time to give to that play.
