And sometimes I get to do this.
Last Friday was about as good as it gets. Spent hours in the booth directing someone who let's face it, needs no directing. You see, sometimes an actor asks me to join them in the booth to read in lines for them, as a) it's more fun and b) we get more improv lines, and always helps the energy and musicality of performance. Sometimes the actor is a LOT of fun to work with. Once in a while that actor is Bill Nighy.
