I look for a director that's smarter and better than I am and the wasting time thing really bugs me, too!

 I am dealing with a director now, we are working on Nutcracker, which is a first for me. Anyway, I like her personally, but jeesh she wastes sooo much of our time. I recruited some of my regular acting gang for this project, and am having a hard time with all the delays, waiting, and tardiness.  Am going to let her know.

G'day Kieth!
Might it work if you have a tech meeting with her?
Also it may be a good clue to do some simple Production form sheets, including running sheets for the show & add a time based element. It might be she has fallen into the old trap, of we have plenty of time.Embarrassed
Pad up your oars, so you do it gently gently; I did it years ago, but the director spat her dunny & pulled the pin 'n evaporatedOuch
I got lumbered with the lot!Angry

 Yeah, I wouldn't want to get lumbered with the lot, that's for sure :) Thanks for the advice.
 
 To add to the misery, she is having some minor surgery this week. Give me strength....

Let's hope the surgery is just cosmetic?
Or you might hear the shout of 'timber'!Ouch

I have found myself at least partially kindred to virtually every response so far, so I am going to just list one small pet peeve......I cannot, cannot, cannot STAND a director who uses his or her audition or rehearsal table as a PICNIC table for his or her FREAKIN' DINNER! As an actor, I do NOT want to hear my director chewing and belching and I really do not want to smell his or her gazpacho while I am trying to rehearse.

Give me your full, undivided attention, and stop shoving a meatball sub down your throat while I am performing!

Just one small subject, but one that REALLY gets my goat!
