I was with a group of friends last evening and we shared things that had recently happened in our lives. One friend has just returned from doing a play in Delaware, where he and the rest of the theater company were tasked with performing what they considering to be one of the worst plays written. There was lots of complaining, blaming, and grumbles, but my friend refused to participate. His determination was that it would be the best performance he had ever done. In the end, despite the cast’s gloomy predictions, the three-hour farce (can you imagine sitting through that) was very well received.
So what’s next for my friend? He just landed the role of Scrooge and he plans to be the best Scrooge even seen in Chicago. I believe that he can do it!
