Part 4:The Upshot
Surely there is some theater you can get involved in there, yes? It would certainly be a short-term fix for not feeling creative, right?
I work 60 hours a week. And, I quit theater because I didn't want to be in the whole half-assed night-time volunteer let's do a crappy play unless I can book a beer commercial in the meantime world any more. If there were any companies around doing really exciting work , I would try and be a part of it, I am just so far out of it. And I do need to be at my practice at least two nights a week. So theater would be a pretty major change.
I don't mean to be dense, here, but how about backing off some of the hours of your practice, since you're not really enjoying it as much as you thought, and supplement with something that allows you to be creative. ARE there any companies doing exciting work? DO you need to be at your practice 2 nights a week? Isn't a major change what you need right now? Maybe a minor change?
It is illuminating to me how averse I am to taking this particular advice. The idea of going out, getting shots, and auditioning for a bunch of random companies and then doing some play somewhere makes me actively barfy. That has to be an indication. If I met someone whose ideas excited me, I would work with them. But since we have lived here I have seen nothing but shit, so it just isn't enticing at all.
I thought of you last night as I was watching a Warhol documentary. New York in the 60s would, indeed, be a good move for you!

I'm going to see Sonnet's new project in a coupel weeks in A-town however and that will make me want to be all involved & crative, I just know it...DAMN!
also...could it not be the whole end of big exciting summer back to the winter-is-coming blues? I get that bad-I'mstill pissed that I don't get summers off.
