I’ve said it many times before that a huge part of a theatre director’s job is casting. If it’s good, then the show is usually good too. Well I’m finally getting a taste of what that’s like in the business world too.
I don’t want to jinx myself, though I’m afraid I probably already have, but I must say that I am super impressed with the Ottawa Fringe staff. I’m still working three jobs right now, on top of being a mom and wife, but I’m not worried. I’m not worried because I can trust my staff. They respect me and I give them room to play in return.
Is everything perfect and exactly as I’d like it to be? No. Do I feel confident enough to leave for a day to take my kid to the doctor’s and know that the train will keep moving forward without me. YES. Which means I can breathe. And breathing is a good thing.
