Little more than a week ago, I had a meeting that I was prepping for. I was so nervous that I think I led them on a maze to get to the point. The meeting was for a directing/choreography gig.
I put a little presentation together showing that I had thought about all aspects of the show to some degree. I talked about ideas for set design, costumes, the show, the music and the auditions. I had ideas that I don’t even know where they came from but that I have never seen, even though I scoured youtube for hours and HOURS during my prep time.
I spoke about my concern that this is was a controversial show when it first opened. I don’t know if it still is. I am sure that someone out there will be upset that it’s seeing the light of day once again. People picketed and if I recall correctly there was even a movie house that was burned down.
I love that one of the producers said “We were just going to come in here and bombard you with a ton of questions. I didn’t know we were getting a presentation!”
After 9 very long days, I finally got the word…AY!!
So I have my first project of 2014!!!! I will be directing and choreographing Jesus Christ Superstar for WVLO Music Theatre!!!!
This news will make the loss of “Sugar” and “Promises” and “Knickers” easier to take.
