Auditioned a couple days ago for a reading of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest with Theater Uncorked. I'd prepared the role of McMurphy, and it was another opportunity to go in there not to get a part, but to present an option for the director — here's a McMurphy you could have. Unimportant what kind of McMurphy they have in mind, just so long as I show them a McMurphy they could use. These days theater auditions for me are services I perform for the adjudicators. No more power dynamics, where I'm there for approval or to get hired. I pretend the money's already changed hands.
Just had my first audition at CP Casting's new digs, way over in Southie on K Street. Kind of a haul to get there now, but I liked the place ok. Actually it reminded me of Boston Casting's location, on an industrial-looking back street in a nondescript building. Never liked that place too much. But I guess it'll feel even more appropriate to be auditioning in Southie for all the South Boston movies that CP ends up casting, rather than at the BCA where they were. Where else should a Boston casting agency be than Southie, really, when you think about it.
