Another Rejection

Another Sunday, another rejection. A polite email from a theater company. I originally applied for this job in April. They re-opened the search, at which point I knew they weren’t going to hire me. They kept me in the mix anyway.

This is probably the last theater I’ll apply to. My resume gets no traction with theaters. I have only interviewed with companies where I have a personal connection, and the skepticism of my skills is so extensive, it’s almost not worth it.

I think this calls for a Mets game.

    It continually amazes me how exclusive and close-minded the theare field seems to be. Despite having worked in regional and university theatre for many years and having an undergraduate and graduate degree in theatre – I perpetually feel like an outsider to American theatre institutions. I’ve been considered, thoughtfully, for positions in the film, television, visual arts, and music industries – the MUSIC industry for goodness’ sake!

    You’re not alone.
