So back in April 2011 I had the extreme pleasure of working as a production assistant for Ahrens and Flaherty on the first major “Rocky” workshop in NYC. Sylvester Stallone came and saw it and everything. It was killer. I then got to go back - either that fall or the next - for the Brooklyn Lyceum edition, with Alex Timbers now at the helm.
Why is this relevant now? Well, as you can imagine, lil baby 20-year-old Maggie was blown away by getting to hang out with her favoritest ever composer/lyricist duo and was incapable of shutting up about how much she loved them and Rocky and Tom Meehan and Rocky and Andy Karl and Rocky. NOW, THREE YEARS later, TONIGHT, my ENTIRE FAMILY FINALLY GETS TO SEE ROCKY!!!
I hope I didn’t kill it for them with three years of hype … Oh well. Anyway, here’s me and Lynn from the Lincoln Center/Juilliard workshop of “Rocky.”
More pix from the shoot the other night - fearless leader writer/director Kyle and supergirl Zarah.
Switching it up with a post-audition selfie …. Fine, it’s cuz I was running late. BUT the audition went really really well! Second in a row where it was an improv audition for a scripted piece, which I think is odd but whatevah. Last one did NOT go well so I’m super happy to walk away from this one feeling proud of the work I did :)
At Shetler just in the nick of time for my audition… But there’s a sign in for an audition that isn’t mine and that’s the only sign in and now I’m confused and there’s no one of authority around whom I can ask and I don’t want to bother the other girls and idk mmstkalyxlysyleuvk
"You know what that sound is, highness? Those are the shrieking eels…"
"I will riiiiiiide I will flyyyyyyyy chase the wind and touch the skyyyyy…"
By complete coincidence, a friend of mine from my old acting class was on the shoot with me yesterday - playing a fantastically gay bartender.
Omg race to the finish to see which picture will be the first ever of mine to reach 400 notes - “Arya-Rat is so flat here” or “Sansa and the Power Cord.”
Nail-biting neck-and-neck notes at the moment …
6 til midnight. Shoot was supposed to end hours ago. Most of the crew left. Our sound is now being run by Luna Lovegood/my new best friend Zarah.
