I am me. That is genuinely all you need to know. Hope I can help with your questions.

  • Do other languages use plural nouns to talk about non binary people?

    Just randomly curious i.e. in the same way you'd use "they", you'd use "ellos" in Spanish, though I do wonder since there is a masculine and feminine version, do you just default to masculine like you do with some other words?

  • Is there a way to make your face more expressive?

    I don't have a very expressive face and it's really throwing off my ability to perform. I try to make my facial expressions stronger but it looks forced and even when I am at my strongest emotionally (i.e. genuinely devastated, happy or any other emotion) my face still doesn't do much. I'm not looking to be a great actress or anything, I just want to be able to look like I'm not bored as all hell on the few occasions I'm given solos.

  • I just don t care about things anymore.?

    So the last few days I have been working on an essay. I m in my final year at university I didn t pay enough attention during the module and now I m sure what I m writing will only get me a half decent grade. I ve spent most of the last 2 days crying over my stupidity. My mum told me to just do my best and if it s a low grade it s a low grade. But that s put in a different place. I don t even care about it anymore. I know it s not going to be a decent essay anymore so I just can t be bothered to do it. Part of me doesn t even want to hand it and just take the 0. I have no idea why. If this essay is bad enough I ve wasted the last 2 years of my life and can t use my degree to get anywhere. But I just don t give a damn. I m ruining my life and I just can t even care about it anymore. I have no one else to talk to about it. The only one who can change things is me and I know I m never going to change and I know this essay is going to be terrible so why shouldn t I just spend my evening ******* around on the internet like the lazy waste of space I am?

  • Are there any white people in the Broadway cast of Hamilton?

    I'm genuinely just curious. Because I saw people complaining that they were calling for non white actors in auditions a few months back but I swear in cast pictures, I've seen a few white people already in the cast so it's not like white people are completely excluded. Or am I mistaken? It's no big thing, I'm just genuinely curious.

  • How do Broadway directors pick their understudies?

    So I've recently started watching the TV series Smash. Yes I know TV shows aren't often accurate depictions of things; it was more just something that got me thinking. Basically the episode was about a call back for a lead role and I was just wondering is the understudy normally one of the people they originally called back. I'm not asking for a real life situation, just curious.

  • Why does Viola assume the disguise of Cesario in Twelfth Night?

    So I've just finished the play for a class and I still don't understand why Viola disguises herself as Cesario in the first place. Is it just to get a job from a wealthy employer? I don't understand what makes her decide to at all. As far as I can tell, she personally is not under any scrutiny so I'm very confused.

  • How have a managed to ruin this record?

    My parents got me a record player for Christmas; I haven't used it much as I'm a bit paranoid about messing it up. The record I've probably listened to the most is Ella Fitzgerald's Manhattan which I've probably listened to around 8 times. I take ridiculously good care of this record; I keep the dust jacket it a safe place while I'm playing it. I don't leave it out if it's not playing. That one in particular even has extra casing which I always put it back in. But I tried playing it a little while ago and it's suddenly gone all distorted. What have I done wrong?

  • How I can I rephrase this?

    So basically for a piece of work I need to write what I m doing through these things called "activities" and phrase things like "I abide you", "I galvanize you" but I can t phrase things like "I confess to you". For some silly reason the "to" isn t allowed so what word can I use to phrase it like the others?

  • Is it legal to bring caffeine pills to the UK from the US?

    It's mainly so I can get up early and take in as much of New York as possible without getting tired out. They're not a necessity but if I can take them with me I'm going to.

  • What audition songs would suit me?

    So I try to do a lot of theatre at uni but rarely get cast in any of the musicals. Now I know no matter what happens a lot of people audition for these and your chances are never great but in my most recent one I sang "Out Tonight" from Rent and I thought I did an ok job but wasn t really sure. Anyway, I didn t get it but I was talking with a friend and when I told her what song I did she laughed before apologising and explaining she really didn t think the song would suit me. I thought on it and considering the way I look and act, I guess she has a point. I look very young and I guess have something of a "sweet and innocent" disposition. So I m compiling a list of songs I could do but wouldn t mind having some to add (I may know the songs suggested but am just unsure whether to add them). I m mainly basing it on characters I think suit me. This is my list so far-

    "I Can Hear The Bells"- Hairspray

    "The Life I Never Led"- Sister Act

    "Little Lamb"- Gypsy

    "I Know Things Now" and maybe "On The Steps of The Palace"- Into The Woods

    "Carrie"- Carrie

    "It Might As Well Rain Until September"- Beautiful

    "Goodbye Little Dream, Goodbye"- Anything Goes

    "If I Were A Bell"- Guys and Dolls

    "Better Luck Next Time"- Top Hat

  • What can I use a goldfish bowl for?

    So I had goldfish in a large glass bowl but unfortunately they died (no judgement please I know the bowl was a mistake). But now the bowl is just sitting there and I don't know what to do with it. I feel it's kind of a waste to throw it away. Ideas?

  • National Youth Theatre questions?

    So I auditioned for the National Youth Theatre 2 years ago and didn t get in and because I love acting, I ve thought I may as well give it another go. Maybe I ll get lucky if I practise enough. But I digress. There s two things I m having a problem with. Firstly, I don t really know where to find a monologue. Websites that have lists of them aren t normally any good because I can t find the plays they come from. Secondly, I m not sure I can afford a professional head shot. Last time I just took a picture but I m older and wiser now and I don t think a standard picture is good enough.

  • Latin/Spanish songs in English?

    So I run a Glee club and next week is International Week so I m trying to sort out something for us to perform as a group. One idea I had was to have some kind of Latin/Spanish song as an option. But as ridiculous as it might sound, I need one that s in English. We only work on these songs for one week so I need to be able to teach them the song pretty fast. Any ideas?

  • Dwelling on bad acting choices?

    So I'm no professional, I just really love acting so I audition for university shows every single term but have never gotten a part. I've done my best to stop letting it bother me in the hopes I may eventually be cast. Plus, whatever my ability, the auditions are always a laugh. I actually got a callback for the one show I thought I definately wasn't getting a callback in. But all I could think about is how this other show had rejected me. You see, for part of the audition we had to make up a mini monologue. Because I knew the director to be quite zany I decided "Ok sod it; if I get rejected, I get rejected. I'm just gonna go balls to the wall bat **** insane with this." And I did. And at the time I got a kind of uncertain response. It was only when I actually got rejected I got into my head "God he must think I'm a crazy person now or at least someone who makes horrible acting decisions." Now I can't stop dwelling on it. Help. It might be worth noting the director is also a student.

  • Is this unwise?

    I'm auditioning for my university's production of Parade today and I've had my audition song picked out for a few weeks. However I'm now having second thoughts; I look and act quite young (not so much childish but in terms of voice and mannerisms) so I thought I'd sing a song that is suitable for the child roles, I Know Things Now from Into The Woods (we're not allowed to sing songs from the actual show). However, this mean it's unlike they'll consider me for the adult roles at all (you don't audition for specfic roles, you just sing your song and do I range test). Personally I thought I'd be an unlikely pick to begin with but now I'm getting worried. Should I pick another song?
