"The label you give yourself cannot impact external forces that are not motivated by your own psychology or influenced by a third party's pre-existing consciousness of you. We are all presented with reasons to struggle which come from completely external forces; to pretend that one is not struggling is either arrogance or an admission of defeat. To admit that one is struggling is a sign and a source of strength." - Evan A. Baker

Headshots on the Floor

The auditions went great! We only needed 3 women, and we were inundated with so much talent and great personalities that I said to my fellow producers, "...Can we add a fourth and double cast?" I got a huge YES! and that's what we did!

And, get this, we even have a list of alternates; women we fell in love with and want to eventually get onstage. (You're one of them Morgan!!) If all goes well, we'll have a third show, a fourth, and on and on, and we can get everyone we love in this thing.

So now, I'm grouping my ladies, making sure those who have to have one date over the other are in their proper group, which means that I have 8 headshots on the floor with sticky notes on their necks indicating which monologue I've given them.

Eight incredibly talented ladies who flavor the written words with their personalities; who can take a character I've dreamt up, and make real. All eight incredibly talented ladies very excited to be a part of this show.

It's fantastic and wonderful and humbling.


  1. I'm so excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Hi Lira, I wanted to ask where you did your headshots? I love your photos! Thanks!

    1. My current ones were shot by Dana Patrick. She is pricey, and has a three month wait, but hey, tax deduction!


Play nice.
