I'm way excited for Les Mis.
This is the first year I've actually auditioned for a musical... the one bridge in Theatre that I haven't crossed. Normally I just stick to Shakespeare and straight plays. I had a strict no singing policy, but I actually did it. I didn't TOTALLY butcher the song, and I think I finished with a strong monologue... it went okay.
I'm worried though.
I have this mental block sometimes where I'm too scared to put myself out there completely without reservation... because if I can't do it one hundred percent, why even bother trying it? I'm not sure that I'm making any sense at all here... I set my expectations for myself obscenely high, and if I can't reach it I give up, and consider myself a total failure. That's why I didn't audition for any musical prior to this.
I really want this experience though, I'm just scared that I'm getting in my own way.
