I happened to catch a program about the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival.  It was fascinating HIGH CLASS reality TV in that it showed the audition and rehearsal process of putting up Shakespeare in six weeks.

The auditioners talked about how the actors auditioning spent hours upon hours auditioning and then how they had to show all of their work in two minutes.  One actor said after an audition he would go back to his one bedroom apartment and eat ramen wondering what the hell he was doing with his life.

I’m at that crossroads everyday and especially right now.  I’ve been VERY heavily leaning towards saying “to HECK with you, Acting!”
