Last week, I mentioned that I brought Hannah to an audition for Annie Get Your Gun and the director convinced me to audition, too (something I hadn't entertained until that moment.) Well, I got a call today, saying I am one of two women being considered for the role of Annie. I am beyond shocked. I never in a million years pictured myself as the lead in a musical (except when I was a girl, I suppose; my sister and I were always singing along to musical sountracks and putting together our own productions.) The director wants me to come in to the studio tomorrow night--they want to see which of us has better chemistry with the male lead. I may just tell them to go ahead and give the role to the other woman--I really don't have time to take on such a huge endeavor--but I'm very flattered (and, I have to admit, curious to see if I could actually pull it off. I know I would learn a lot in the process.) I'll let you know if I decide to give it a go tomorrow night...

Don't say no. I think it would be SOOOOO cool! I would even try to come down from NYC!

Oh, wow. Now I'm even more motivated to give it a go. It would be well worth making a fool of myself if you were to come out, too, Masha! I'll see if I can work up the nerve to go tonight...
