I've had a lot of highs in my career so-far :-)
Productions I really believe in, with people I can learn from and grow with.
But then things happen that remind me I can't take those opportunities for granted.
We were 4 weeks into rehearsals for Taming of the Shrew. I was playing Bianca ;)
For a complex and emotional set of reasons, the show could not go on.
But regardless, I learned some important things:
Good theatre doesn't just happen. It takes good leadership, unity, and communication.
When I am tempted to cut-ties from something "toxic," I prefer the option of honest communication and keeping my word in good-faith.
Even in the worst of times, I'm glad to be on this path.
