Decisions, decisions

I've got a decision to make, and I need to make it quicky.
I went with Rahel to auditions for "The Importance of Being Earnest" by Oscar Wilde at BLT. I had no intention of auditioning myself, because I was planning on being out of town the last weekend for a trip with Wendy. But, of course, Gordon ignored that and cast me anyway. So I need to decide if I'm going to accept the part or not.
In favor of the part:

  • I like Oscar Wilde
  • It's the lead (Jack)

But on the other side:

  • I'd be disappointing Wendy, and missing out on spending time with her
  • I'm mad a Gordon for trying to "bully" me into this
  • My "love interest" in the show would be played by ... my daughter, Katie!

So I'm really torn.




I have one word that will hopefully help you with your decision......Gordon.Anne

Yes, I'm quite aware of that aspect of it. (He went into his "counting damns" joke at auditions - he doesn't understand that it's not the WORDS, it's the ATTITUDE)

But I also don't want to spite the theater just because I have some problems with the director.

I don't see it as spite...I see it as maintaining your mental health.Anne
