In this case, I let myself get distracted by someone else's audition and let it color (or change) what I was intending to do. Now, I suppose I am the only one that knows that. I have no idea how the audition looked to others. I am sure it was adequate. But I wanted drop mouth to the floor spectacular. I guess I am a perfectionist in that way. I… Continue

I heard about Jack Zink passing away tonight. I was shocked. I didn't know he was sick. I didn't know Jack well but back when I was a theater critic for New Times, he was always so kind to me. In a group of curmudgeon reporters, he always was the one to an extend a welcome to me and make me feel part of the old school group. He was a very kind and sincere man and I am saddened that he is gone. It is a loss to our community.

* Before going into an audition, I always try to do some vocal exercises -- usually on the way there.
