This morning finds me happily ensconced on my couch in Vienna, VA. While KPW is listening to more opera (the MONC southwestern regionals), I'm doing laundry, hanging with my boys, and enjoying the beautiful autumn weather. It's a welcome respite, as the next week's travel is pretty ugly; full audition days followed by travel in the evenings.
But there's already been significant beauty on this tour, starting with the scenery. Can you believe that view?
We've heard some great auditions already. Folks have been bringing in standard rep that suits them well, and the singers in Los Angeles as a whole were quite put together. We're seeing a bit of a purple dress trend this year, which I'm totally digging. We also heard some fabulous monologues from Studio candidates, in particular a Fannie Flagg monologue with a lovely southern accent and a cutting from the movie "Meet the Parents." Good stuff!
Ok, on to laundry and loafing. I'll see you in Chicago, amici!
