WELL VERSED

LINES BY B'WAY BARDS
THE OTHER SIDE OF THE 8 X 10 GLOSSY
or
WHO IS THE DIRECTOR AND WHAT IS HE WRITING ABOUT ACTORS AUDITIONING FOR HIM 

Very attractive; looks older than pic;
In-between type; too ethnic; too slick;
Moves well, impersonal; doesn't relate; 
Very nervous; had nose job; hair is now straight;
Charming and bright; a comedic chest;
Big, brassy blonde; very Mae West;
Too hard; too pushy; improv a bit dry;
Personality, dull; seems a bit shy;
C-E vocal range; good variation;
Reading is flat; lacks concentration;
Good use of body; a fine comic sense;
Butch; macho; sissy; uptight and too tense.

The director's initial reaction will show
In his final notation; a big "N" means NO;
But "CB" means Call Back, an actor's delight;
It's another step closer to OPENING
NIGHT .... MAYBE!
--Gloria Rosenthal

IF ONLY...

How lucky is the movie star 
Whose fact, in ever-youthful bloom,
On late TV and VCR
Still beautifies our living room.

Not so with bygone stars of stage,
No tapes preserve them in their prime.
Few films recall their Golden Age,
Their charms, alas, are dimmed by Time.

Just think! If one could only view
The youthful Lunts and Kit Cornell,
Plus Noel and Gertie, blond Tallu,
(Let's add the Barrymores as well.)

Assemble them on one cassette,
Those idols only few recall,
And what you'd see you'd not forget;
the greatest Late Show of them all.
--Arnold M. Auerbach

BROADWAY JABBERWOCKY

"Twas Mamet and the Streepy glooms
Did Guare and gambol on the Rabe.
All Swoosie were the Tandy Humes
and the Judd Hirsch outgrabe.

Observe the Joepapp bird, my son,
Admire the Shepard's flock.
Show reverence to the Trevornunn
and Simon. (Knows as "Doc.") 

But if Frank-rich is what you're not,
Go spend a little less
By two-feting at the frabjous spot
That spells T K T S.
--Arnold M. Auerbach
