well, i haven't really decided if this is a bad thing or not. but here's the deal. a playhouse i've done things for in the past just had an actor drop out of their current production of Death of a Salesman. they called me to see if i could help out in it. after checking with my boss to see about the time i'd need to be available, it turns out i can do it. thing is, the show opens on november 1st. we do a 3 show weekend (fri & sat @ 8 and a sun @ 2) and then the same the following weekend. after that, i'll be involved in a production of scrooge. however, my part won't be so major that i have to be at every rehearsal, unless i'm needed in other scenes. i'm playing the darth vader of the show. you know? the ghost of christmas yet to come. big, scary, black costume. gonna kickass. so the earliest i can come out to raleigh to see imax episode ii would be the 3rd weekend of november. better late than never.
