“Brass balls, brass balls, brass balls…”
Caitlyn d’Angelo chanted her favorite mantra under her breath. If there was one thing she’d learned from her long-ago acting career, it was to act like she had a pair even when she was scared stiff. Bravado had gotten her farther than talent ever had.
So why was she hyperventilating in her car instead of charging into the Rock Point Community Theater’s auditions for The Taming of the Shrew?
Granted, her thespian days far behind her, back when she was a stage-struck kid. And her final stage appearance – as Ophelia in Hamlet – was a blur. But her other performances had been stellar. Critics raved, directors schmoozed, agents clamored.
