I have received another rejection.

A thanks but no thanks; great job, but we went with someone else; a cold yet polite thanks for coming out.

It's really easy to look at how historically and personally terrible 2016 was. I, like a lot of folks, have had a tough year. But in preparation for 2017, I spent a lot of time reflecting on what I accomplished, and found there was a lot to celebrate:

Repost from IMakeTheater.blogspot.com

Amidst a part-time work schedule, some upcoming teaching work, and a show downtown, I managed to finagle getting up to an EPA in NYC last Friday. I was stoked; I was auditioning with Angelo from Measure for Measure for an all-female...
