It’s very strange to drive 200 miles to perform an 8 minute, boiled-down version of your show, for no pay, in front of a panel of six people who don’t want to react and/or are bored. I did the Center East Showcase audition today in Skokie IL, and with the exception of one lady, the judges were pretty stone-faced. I actually had to point at, and specifically address, a couple of them to get them to react to some of the things I said. And the worst part about it is that there is no way to know how I did until they announce who got through. It’ll be worth it if I do make it though. Last time I performed at the showcase I got a LOT of work out of it. We’ll see what happens.
