We opened last night and really have learned a lot. Group of young actors is quite impressive and kept me on my toes. The core ensemble members have a great spirit and reminds me of running Beacon St. Playhouse when I was exactly their age. Wow seems so long ago. Will Crouse directed and was willing to change his mind about the play right up to opening, which was gutsy, but glad he did. I think I would have found some middle ground that late in the game, but he would not relent. And it was worth the result.

Opening in less than a week and really excited. Learning a lot from this great group. I was thinking it has been a while since I did a serious drama. Really a different kind of experience for me. Times I feel good and times I feel "what am I doing." Than Will comes in and says "you are doing great, man." I am too much in my head. Meisner would be kicking me out of class right now.

Got the call last night and showed up for five minutes and auditioned for MIND GAMES that is filming here in Chicago. Was really fun. And it's up to that mysterious lady in the back of the room if I go on to a callback. Please TV Gods.
