the things actors do

I have to give the cast of the NYCPlaywrights March Play of the Month alot of credit - they have to do alot of wacky things for this play. It always amazes me how fast some actors are at getting into character, especially since we usually do like one read-through and at most 2 - 3 takes per scene - but I have to run a tight ship -  invariably at least one actor out of any given play of the month cast will be in the middle of something and can only spare a few hours for this recording. I had Mike and Tony for three hours and Bruce, who is currently in a production of THE CLEAN HOUSE for only one.
