I Need My Mojo!

I failed to get the actor's name, but this guy read brilliantly for Capulet and/or Friar Lawrence. He was crisp and subtle, both. His work seemed to express both long experience and lively talent. He was supple. By comparison, I was leaden, reading clumsily and heavily, I'd even say, boorishly.

I need my mojo.

You were not leaden, nor were you clumsy, nor heavy, nor boorish. What little bit I saw of your audition I thought was apt, maybe not quite at performance level, but enough to demonstrate you could handle the tricky and wide swings of Lord Capulet's dealings with his nephew.

Yes, if it's the same actor I'm thinking of, that guy was pretty good. I didn't recognize him from anything, but I could swear I'd seen him before. I didn't get the sense that he wanted the Friar, though. We'll see, I suppose.

It was good to see you in the trenches again, worthy Montano. Happy hunting.

Paul - You read Tybalt quite nicely, yourself. Nice work.

David, man...

I was too under the weather to respond to your post yesterday, but whooooo... cut yerself a break, dude! You did fine work. Sure, you tripped over a line here and there. You didn't let the language defeat you, though, and you got your intentions across to Sarah and the gent playing Tybalt with you.

You simply had a different read than either I or the guy you're talking about did. He was fabulous, I'll agree... but you put in a solid reading yourself. Don't get too wrapped up in comparing yourself to others. That way lies madness...
