In just over a month, I will be making my professional début as an actor on the New York stage, in the Fringe Festival, in a pair of plays called Scout’s Honor and Becky’s Beaver. My character in Becky’s Beaver is apparently still under construction, but she is, I’m told, a fraidy-cat Girl Scout. In Scout’s Honor I will be playing a gay Cub Scout with an anxiety disorder. I’m a little worried that portraying a character so different from me will be difficult, if not impossible, but a man’s reach should exceed his grasp, or what’s a heaven for?
The show will be performed by six actors; three men and three women. In Scout’s Honor all six of us will play boys, and in Becky’s Beaver all six of us will play girls. I got the call informing me I’d been cast a couple of weeks ago, and have spent the entire time since then hoping against hope that the character with whom I have a make-out scene will be played by a boy rather than by a girl, especially because there’s rope involved.
We had our first rehearsal last night, and not only is the character with whom I have a make-out scene played by a boy rather than by a girl, but the actor playing him is hot.
1) How do I apply to be your understudy?
2) You haven’t been vaccinated against bird flu yet, right?
As good as I’m sure you’ll be in those shows, I’m looking forward to ‘Sodomy & Pedicures’. Just imagine! My 2 favorite things in the world, together, in one show! Genius!
Are you inviting your favorite Filipino grocer? 🙂 Oh, I can’t remember if I responded to the book intro… I liked it.
So, did you list the porn flick as theatrical experience on your resume?
Congratulations! I have to say that after a month of rehearsals Mr Hotness may look just a tad less attractive.
Congratulations! Maybe you’ll be discovered by television producers and cast in Isaiah Washington’s next big series, where you can teach him what it’s REALLY like to work with a cute but ruthlessly Machiavellian faggot willing to stomp on anyone who gets in his way. No rush. I suspect you have plenty of time.
See? Wishes do come true.
I’m always so impressed with actors who come out of their safety zone to find that true inner soul of the characters they plan.
So hot. My first boy-on-boy kiss (stage!) was at the Fringe a few years ago.
And he was straight.
Your performance schedule better be accommodating. None of this Tuesday at 2PM bullshit.
Since your co-osculator is an actor, we can assume a) that he has a web site, and b) that he would not mind you linking to that web site. I hear there’s no such thing as bad publicity.
I want an image, and I want it now. Work with me Faustus.
