Sneer away, citizen!

I now officially have a speaking part in Pimpernel. I'm Mercier, the sneering henchman of crapdaddy's Citizen Chauvelin.

I say sneering because that's how I've decided to play him. I informed my fellow French soldiers last night that the key to being convincingly Parisian is to always look as if you've just smelled a fart, and suspect that guy over there.
I promise not to rattle on about the play much more - I know many, if not most of you reading this are almost constantly in one production or another. It's just that it's the first theatre I've done since college, and for all that it was a total impulsive move to audition; I'm really glad I did.

Though, I worry about the dancing... If I'm not in the machine room with my iPod, I''m just not very funky.

Also - how was your fake resume received?

If anyone even noticed it, I didn't hear about it. Which is really unconscionable, for an actor who is beautifully trained and perfectly talented as myself.

That *is* a shame! You are clearly underappreciated ;)

Also, I would like to add that if you are still threatening the pets of us poor misfortunates who won't be able to attend the play, I'll just note that if yoyu're gong to travel to murder my poor helpless hamster, you may as well just give *me* the money for tavel and then I'll come see you play. Ha!

You assume I don't have some means of free and/or instantaneous transport for myself, but only myself. A dangerous assumption for you and Scallywag to make!

I do assume that. I will have to think of some other means to protect my fuzzy little friend! A system of safehoues, perhaps - hmmm....

well, rather than spending a lot of time and money protecting your rodent...why not just fly out and enjoy some on-stage sneering?

hee! If that were the more economical choice, clearly that would be the answer! Alas, a ticket to LA is still more expensive than saying 'hey, can you take care of my hamster for a few days, shh, he's entering hamster Protection Program...' ;)

Being in a show for the first time in a long time, you're entitled to some excited ramblings about it. Besides. Even people who do it for a living gush about their current show/gig from time to time especially if it's a production they're really excited about doing.
And I wouldn't worry about the dancing. Worse comes to worse, the choreographer will place you way upstage and say something like, "So just do a little step together step together right here for the song and just look pretty."

*nod* I'm a salty old show dog and I haven't been this excited about a show in AGES. I've been doing my fair share of gushing about it too. Part of it is the awesome role I was lucky enough to land, but a lot of that excitment comes from having Davy on board.
