Fearless Cold Reading & Audition Technique with Karen Kohlhaas

In December 2012, I took Karen Kohlhaas’s Fearless Cold Reading & Audition Technique class. I immediately felt stronger in every audition after this class, particularly in cold readings. There have been actual occasions where I had to read from a script I had never seen before. I was able to give a fantastic, relaxed audition–and have even booked roles from this very situation.

For its 10th anniversary, I’ve given this song a makeover. I wrote it during the fight for marriage equality, yet the song still resonates given the actions and goals of the current administration. This July, I celebrate 10 years of marriage with the man this song is about. No one can take that away from us.
