It's been quite the whirlwind of activity since January 5th when I started auditions for my stage musical, "Dorian-The Remarkable Mister Gray."
We saw people on that Saturday, the next day, and then again this past Saturday, the 12th.
Yesterday, Sunday the 13th we had our first marathon group meeting and read-through/listen-through. That was the first chance people had to hear the entire production - they're excited by the challenge. Those of you who have heard some of the "Dorian" pieces in The Listening Room have some idea about the score's relative difficulty. I'm confident the group we've assembled are willing, eager and able to dig into it with gusto.
In a word - it's all going Remarkably!
Wonderful cast - VERy fortunate to have found an excellent singer/performer in the extremely large and critical role of Dorian. Jason Bailey is a name to remember - He's going to be superb in the role.
The entire company is brimming with wonderful voices, exciting talent.
Off we go! 13 weeks of rehearsals 4 and 5 days a week, then 7 days a week right up until opening on April 18th.
I'll grab what time I can in the mornings to keep in touch with these Forums which bring so much light into my life.
