“Break a Leg” by Alex Sensiba.
Alex Sensiba shares a journey of a theater tryout gone wrong in “Break a Leg.”
Panel 1: A ballerina dances on a stage, wearing a leotard, a skirt, and a hat shaped like the neck and head of a swan.
Panel 2: The ballerina continues to dance, her arms and the swan-hat swooping as she moves her body.
Panel 3: The ballerina looks up as her dance is interrupted by an unseen speaker who says, “Sorry, I don’t think you’re what we’re looking for.”
Panel 4: The swan-hat speaks to the ballerina, “I told you we should have auditioned for Hamlet”. The ballerina rolls her eyes.
