Ways I Felt Involved at UCB Theatre
My last post about “feeling involved” and now I’m trying to remember what things happened that made me feel involved. I tried to include the ways in which I met people who later helped me get performance/job opportunities.
November 1999- Summer 2000:
Met friends in a Kevin Mullaney 101 (as detailed in this post) and we started practicing together. We hired Seth Morris and then Billy Merritt as coaches. Billy started saying hi to us at Harold Night and at McManus.
Kevin Mullaney would be at McManus and we’d get what felt like insidery stories about Chicago.
Saw enough shows that I knew who the main players of the UCB stage were. I knew who the stars were, and who was struggling (in my opinion, from an audience member’s perspective). At McManus after classes, I would be the one telling people about what shows were good.
