Another cool contact
Hello everyone. It's Colin. Today I will be talking about another cool contact I made through the mentor of this entire project, and one of the coco founders of it: Debi Kierst. She got me in contact with an actor in New York who I will see when I go to sing at Carnegie Hall for the second time. My family and I are going a day early to New York so I can actually explore New York, and see the city, unlike the last time due to rehearsals, but I also plan to meet with this director during this time. Her name: Jennifer Smith. I do not know much about her, since I have not met with her yet, and she has not told me much about herself, but I do know this: I am totally psyched to meet with her. I know that this is my reaction with any contact I make, but I truly am excited. I am not only making great connections in this project and furthering my experience as a playwright, and learning from the masters, but I am also furthering my connections in the field which I want to go into for my career. This is what the project is about, and I really love that aspect of it.
I have been emailing with her back and forth and I have not yet had time to come up with a lot of questions, but this is one of the best experiences I think I will have throughout this project, even though I cannot predict the future, and I don't know how this meeting with Ms. Smith is going to go, but I do know that this meeting is different than any other meeting than I have had throughout the project. I have been meeting with people who are actors and directors regionally, but I have not yet ventured out of the state. This interview, as well as the interview with Mickey Rowe that I will be having sooner than the one with Ms. Smith, are in one of the biggest places that acting is truly appreciated, and it is scary but also exciting. I am making myself known in the theatre community through this project and I am making my mark on the stage.
I will make an extension of this blog when I have met with her and have notes from the interview and I have felt the experience of doing an interview with a very big Broadway actor. I will do the same for my interview with Mickey Rowe.
But that's all for now. Be sure to keep following my blog for more updates and cool stuff happening.
