Happy Month of May Older Americans Month. I love the idea of celebrating a whole month for the elderly Americans. You may not be there yet but one day you may wake up and find you’re a grandparent just like me.
It’s also almost Sunday and time to share our snippets so let’s have at it. My story is titled Spreading Her Wings. Sally Kirkwood is the friendly neighborhood reporter who helps Teresa find her daughter Misty, self involved in preparing for a Broadway audition.
As many of you know I was an actor in NYC for years. My take on this story is very real.
excerpt in eight:
In the darkened theatre, several men sat talking, computers on laps, taking notes while the director and his assistant rubbed their hands in anticipation.
Jerry Kaufman, the chief producer’s job was to gather the money to get the play up and running and already the men here had already pledged a bunch of dough.
The last man to arrive came up the aisle with a gawky girl in tow.
“Oh shit, please tell me she’s not the daughter he wants as the lead in the play.”
Seymour, his assistant, nudged him in the arm and said, “Jerry, she’s the girl O’Malley wants as the lead
and right away I can tell she’s a triple threat; can’t dance, can’t sing, can’t act.”
“The nerve of him coming in late when all the boys and girls are already lined up.”
“Money makes the world go around, Jerry so work with it and say hello at least.”
Jerry rose from his slump in the auditorium; “Hi Mr. O’Malley. How are you and who is this young lady?”
