I’ll be honest with you, I don’t know what I should say here.
If you ask me how I feel about working on The International Pastime, I think the photo above pretty much sums it up. It’s hard work, it’s painful, and it’s a challenge. And I love it.
As a producer, my time is spent calling people, writing e-mails, negotiating, begging, spending money, and herding kittens. And as an actor, I’m coming face-to-face with the darkest recesses of my insecurity, and catching a literal, if only staged, knee to the nuts every week.
But it’s worth it. It’s worth every sleepless night, every bruise to my pride, every argument with my best friend, and every second of crippling self doubt. It’s worth it, because I’m working with some of the most amazing people I know. Anton is an amazing writer & director, hard-working & naturally gifted. Our cast represents the most vivacious, intense, creative, and pleasantly insane group of people I’ve ever seen in one place. And our crew / team kicks more ass than a donkey battle royale.
I learn something from every person with us! This play is breaking me down in all the right ways to let me build myself back up, better than I could have been without these people. I leave rehearsals with a huge smile on my face and a ton of inspiration for the next week.
Thanks a million! I can’t wait to take this to the stage! 🎭
