As most of you already know I was recently cast as Jack in the musical "Into the Woods" by Steven Sondheim. The all too well known Jack in the beanstalk is proving to be more difficult than I had anticipated. I can sing the music (which music is usually my problem in these type things) but this time its the character that I am having trouble getting into. Jack is a socially awkward teenage peasant who's best friend is the cow "milky white". I see him as having subtle quirks and a very readable face, yet a big very immature personality. This personality is supposed to develop and mature during the duration of the show. Hmmn... I think I had better learn my lines!
