Last week we read Bloom's chapter on casting a performance piece, as a lead-in of sorts to reading David Saar's "The Yellow Boat". Now that you've completed both readings, write about how you would approach casting "The Yellow Boat" yourself. What would you be looking for? What are important attributes of actors for a specific part? Who would you match for joint-auditions to test relationship dynamics? Can you foresee any difficulties with casting a specific part? Support your response with examples from the text.
