Too darn hot

Kate's new air conditioner
This week, BPT has played host to some of the hottest actors in our area, during callback auditions for our season of new plays. And yes, I’m talking about performers familiar to our local stages – actors in demand, some our acting royalty – but I’m also saying, literally, the talent is sweating. As I started thinking about this post in the lobby (yesterday, while I was checking in actors while callbacks for Peter M. Floyd’s Absence were taking place in the front theatre), it was 95 degrees outside and an Excessive Heat Warning had been issued. Toasty.

Amidst the chaos of nervous, pacing, roasting actors, Kate got a new air conditioner, which is a very, very good thing. And now it’s Friday. Try to stay cool out there, and have a good weekend.

  1. And today for BURNING callbacks it could break 100 degrees.

    1. Exactly!!! Luckily, the heat is supposed to break this weekend.
