I have cheered up considerably since the morning. Steve has left and gone to a clients (woo hoo!) and Brittney called to tell me that she will be catching a ride with Rick to the audition. So one more cast-able male. That's great. I solved another problem with the males, too. I am casting this girl named Star something-or-other as one of the males and it's gonna work just fine. She wants to play a man and this might be a cute role for her. I can cast her as the Pedant and then she can pretend to be Vincentio in Act IV. But when she is not pretending to be Vincentio, she can be a woman, which might make the subterfuge even funnier. One less male to cast. Sometimes I'm brilliant.
