Last Tuesday (which is quickly becoming my main filming day, interestingly enough), I did some background work for the upcoming Hallmark TV-movie "Unorthodox," starring Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under) and Adam Kaufman (Without a Trace). I met a lot of new people as well as came across familiar faces in the DC/Baltimore area. At one point in filming, a family sneaked a photo of one of their relatives standing near me. Apparently they thought I was the lead as I was in the middle of the train station right in the path of the camera. Boy, are they going to be disappointed! :)
Thankfully, I managed to take some time to catch two plays last week: Bay Theatre Company's "True West" and 1st Stage Spring Hill's "The Suicide." Both were definitely "worth their salt," in their own ways. Two bordering-on-absurd shows from two different time periods, originating in two different parts of the world. I haven't been able to catch many plays recently, so seeing two in a week was a real treat.
Tomorrow I'll be doing some makeup work downtown at the International Spy Museum for the annual Operation Undercover: Secrets of Disguise kids event. This will be my third year helping out at this event and it's always great fun to see what the kids come up with as their disguises.
All I have to figure out now is what I'm going to be for Halloween!
