“Central Artists in Los Angeles says they are bi-coastal but almost all my auditions/bookings came from Prestige here in New York. I'm very loyal but, as you have said in your podcasts, "it's business and not personal.' I know all is kind of in limbo production wise with the pandemic at the moment, but this is my career and I need the best team I can assemble behind me.”
“There's been a steady advance of "technology creep," imposing more and more technical demands on actors … stage actors are often suffocated by zoom auditions, having their inventive powers confined to a screen, unable to respond to the “room” fully in the moment, having to squint at a reader on a screen, unable to be fully physical, etc. And the production staff will get a limited understanding of the actor’s capabilities while creating those very limitations, and might regret hiring an actor who is only capable of a cramped video performance and not a more expansive live presentation.”
