the intoxication of power

Wednesday, November 10th, 2004 at about 3:44 pm

So student productions have started. And oh, God, am I excited. My cast is excellent, my play is better than I thought (once I finish the revisions I’ve started, at least), and I have discovered that I LOVE this position. Hearing my words come out of other peoples’ mouths at auditions made me jumpy, sent me into little giggling fits. And being in the position of the director, i.e. the position of power, i.e. people have to listen to me when I talk. It’s fantastic. People tend to listen anyway (miraculously) but now they do it all that much more attentively.

Oh, oh, it’s so exciting. And the possibilities for this show are great. But first, work must be done. Revisions must be made. Characters need to be developed. People need to be taught how to act. But I have the utmost confidence in my cast that they will be able to do this.

It’s gonna be great.

And now, off to Portland! Back in a few days.
