Apparently a large number of people auditioned on Tuesday night at Kudzu Playhouse. Jason Meinhardt, who will be directing, was at the theater till after 10 PM. Well on Wednesday night, Lane Teilhaber (director of Beau Jest) and I were the only two males to audition. Half-dozen or so females, so Lane and I read with different ladies for the same side. It actually gave me an opportunity to read over the side many times before doing it before the director.
Jason was to phone for callbacks last night and today. I think I did well, but that does not mean anything.
An interesting note: One of the sides I read was for WILLIAM GILLETTE. GILLETTE is well known for his portrayal of Sherlock Holmes and has blurred the lines between Holmes and himself. GILLETTE quotes the well know Holmes axiom “Eliminate the impossible and whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.” This is the single line which defines GILLETTE/Holmes as a character. I never did read that line to my satisfaction. In my mind, a perfect reading of that line within the side could land you the part.
