Can the scheduled program be up to the expectations of the venue? Years ago I canceled programs to face cancer treatments. Looking back I believe it was the right decision as my energy level was a major factor. If the venue had preferred to pursue the contracted program, however, I would still have done it. Such decisions need to be made mutually.

It was a great opportunity to spread the word about this too often overlooked part of our history as we near the centennial of the U.S entering the war.

and, while I'm battling feeling overwhelmed, I confess I just couldn't resist an excellent script, a director with whom I have wonderful past theatre experience, and fellow actors I value.
