oh, yah, hamlet

When I was a teenager I had a beautiful, erotic dream about Ophelia floating in a pool of water singing "... we'll meet again..." It was so gorgeous, freeing and sensual.

Today I auditioned for Hamlet at the Jungle and it was a tense, affected mess. And then Bain said, "I don't understand that speech. In some versions it's cut."

God. Someday I'll brush the fingertips of my potential.


Update: Didn't get called back.


  1. Just a bit of not so much advice as it is my speaking my m mind and you choosing or not to take it, Bain is an ass. What do you mean you "Don't understand that speech"??? And in some versions it's not cut! Does he want to hire you for what you can bring to a show or how well you deliver an audition of a piece that is continually chopped up by ever writer and director on the planet?! Don't let this discourage you, Miss Em! You're talented beyond belief and anyone else who says otherwise is well.... I have words that aren't very nice.

    Hope you're well!

  2. You're sweet. No, he's just fine! He doesn't have a malicious bone in his body. He is Minnesotan and doddy and brilliant and frankly I don't much understand why the speech is there either. It ended up being an interesting conversation.
