What’s It With Me, New York City And Bad Weather

I’m heading into the city again tomorrow. For those following closely this is another commercial audition. I’m looking forward to it because I’ve been asked to affect a German accent and act. When I asked the casting director if the character was over-the-top or nerdy she said, “Yes.” The script encourages physical comedy and ad libbing.

With Helaine listening I read through the script a few times. She laughed. Maybe I can bring a note from home should it not go well in New York?

Though Monday is the first day of spring there’s rain and mixed wintry precipitation in the forecast! Seriously, didn’t Mother Nature get the memo?

This is my third recent trip into New York. This will be my third on a day with rotten weather. Maybe I should read more into this?

    Don’t know but glad you have been getting the auditions…and yes, she probably got the memo but if you think she’s listening you’ve got another thing coming…LOL

    I think it’s intentional – M.N. wants you to have other things to think about so you won’t get nervous. Do you plan on rehearsing aloud on the train all the way in?

      Actually I’m more think of Paul Frees the voice behind Ludwig Von Drake and a million other Disney characters.
