Last fall, I spoke about turning one of my all-time favorite books, How I Paid for College, into a movie. Reservations were had, to be sure.
The same reservations applied to a stage production, though I once penned part of one myself for a class (I’m not sure how successfully, as it was ridiculously theoretical).
Last month, I heard that it was being turned into a stage production. I clapped and jumped for joy, then immediately began worrying, but today I took a closer look at the blurb: “The monologue with songs, which will require the actor to ‘play dozens of characters, command the stage alone for two hours and be able to sing musical theatre songs,’ will play the Virginia venue Dec. 7-30, according to an Equity casting notice.”
This one man to do the one man show, which Marc Acito wrote himself (well, at least I can have faith in the script – Marc Acito is a rad guy and a fun writer), well. I have but the one request in this short post:
Please don’t cast anyone I can think of off the top of my head, guys.
