Agree about the "pat myself on back" attitude in the book. But as far as wheedling into the production I think things were different back then. I think she saw an opportunity and went for it. Didn't Julie get into Annie but "dropping in" on a rehearsal until she got noticed. Hey, why not!? Julie and Shelly both deserved the parts and had the talent so if you have an "in" - go for it! If Julie hadn't done what she did .... there would possibly be no forum today!
