I'm taking acting classes with Gerald Gordon. He's a very eccentric guy. I'd guess that he's around 70 years old. He was a soap opera star as a young man in the 1950's on The Edge of Night. He directed The Fantastiks in LA for many years.
Anyway, he as been very supportive thus far. He wants me to learn how to ride a horse so that I can audition for a western that he his directing this fall. yee-haw.
The class has been great. I have had to read a play each week and perform a monologue from the play. I feel like I am learning all of the things that I should have known before getting into the business. It has been fun to learn a craft.
