A woman came up to me after my show last weekend and said, "You know, you should take a job on a sitcom. Have you thought about being on a sitcom? You should do that instead of children's theatre."
As if I have, up until this point, been turning down dozens upon dozens of sitcom offers because I would much rather maintain my position playing a carrot in "Peter Cottontail" (the musical!).
But, because of her astute comment, I now realize the error of my ways.
So I'll just say it here and now: the next sitcom offer that comes along, I'm just going to TAKE it. I am (well, unless that sitcom is "Whoopi," in which case I may stick the the slightly better written "Peter Cottontail), . Sure I'll miss the fringe benefits of children's theatre like low pay, no health insurance, and costumes that smell like urine. But I'm willing to give that up for the greater good.
So for those sitcom producers who were sitting at home, wondering how their network could possibly go on without a Jill Twiss sitcom, feel free to call. I'm considering all offers.
