From The Company Blog
I received the email on Friday afternoon for the call back on Monday. I had been on my way to the health club and scrapped that to go to The Drama Book Shop, as the recommendation for the call back was to prepare a scene that was dramatic, emotional and painstaking. I didn't have that scene in my back pocket. I picked up some good material there, though, nothing really landed on me. I went back to The Drama Book Shop and bought the play of "The Normal Heart". I read that on Friday evening and then wrote a two page scene of my own. I was already invested in the story, being Albert's Mother, in "The Normal Heart". It didn't make sense to me to prepare a scene from another play, nor did I have time to prepare a scene before Monday.
