Miscellaneous Points

The list of roles for Someone Dies In This Elevator.
The rejection email we sent for Someone Dies In This Elevator. Fun fact — I received nearly this same rejection email from a different show a month after sending these out and I can tell you firsthand, it didn’t feel too bad to get. But then again, getting rejected with your own email is pretty funny.

That’s all I’ve got for you!
