Also - "(news Jones barely flinches at)" again i think you saw a different show.. you could see how badly that hurt her. And yes she did go all that way and expected to work with Williams again. My friends have let me down before when I assumed I was who they inteded to do something of importance like this.
Which leads me to this excerpt. "Her overwrought reaction raises a number of questions: Is she auditioning to direct it, and is she therefore engaging in a form of flattery that's demeaning to both of them?" - It's was clear from her performance. One of the very moments I was almost brought to tears by her pain of being passed up. It was like the moment after a second call back and you knew you were right for the part and you could see your life changing with that role and it just passes over you. Jones clearly loved the work and at least the artist whom Williams was... maybe not so much the man.
