Speaking of MacBeth, this past week I got to work on a fun project called Dont Major in Debt. It was a PSA of sorts geared towards college students and recent grads to help them make smart decisions about attending college and financing your education. (Yeah, I know, where were they when I went to school? lol).
It was organized and produced by the production company of “Sleep No More”, a presentation of Macbeth in which you walk thru a sort of “Haunted House” and see different “scenes” in each room. Borrowing from this idea, the DMID “show” had audience members walk thru different rooms, and in each one a different “lesson” about college financing is taught.
Jane Lynch, star of “Glee”, (among other things) is one of the spokespeople for the project, and so I got to work with her. I admit to being a little bit unnerved during my scene with her. All the while, I’m thinking to myself, “OMG, I am talking to Jane Lynch”. Of course, she’s very cool and very down to earth.
So were all of the other actors I got to work with. This was a cool little project I am glad I was a part of it. Hopefully it will help a lot of young people make smart decisions about college!!
