"We're at half hour!" means
half-hour til the show, NOT spend
half-hour at Starbucks.
I personally would like to bring a tortoise onto the stage, turn it into a racehorse, then into a hat, a song, a dragon and a fountain of water. One can dare anything in the theatre and it is the place where one dares the least. -Ionesco

Why does the best stuff
Always happen on headset
When I'm off at rail?

Seriously, guys,
For once could you be funny
When I can join in?

I'll ask for a raise
At the end of this season
If I can make it!

You can not prompt them,
Next week is tech week you know
They will have to learn.

Don't worry not your show,
Focus on fixing your own,
No comments allowed.

Just because we sing
And act, on personal time,
Let us sing le mis.
Lord, grant me the Serenity
to accept the things that I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the Wisdom to hide those people...

Stop complaining, now.
Just because your life does suck,
Doesn't allow moaning.

Life sucks. I know that,
Whining about it changes nothing,
My life sucks, too. *sigh*

I'm going to kill you,
Dear god, prepare to die,
It is closing night.

Thank god, one day more!
So glad when this is over
You, hypocrite, bye.

These are hilarious!

Tech is still going,
we have done the scene five times,
Fix the damn lights,

I know you are new,
If you have a question ask,
Lying does not help.

ASM not your
Personal assistant nor
Go-for, do your job.

Dear Baby Jesus,
Why can't people do their jobs
I am one, not many.

Rain is falling hard
Wash away the theatre please
Take the actors with
"We don't negotiate with weirdos!"

Clueless director
Plus admin who won't say no
Equals my lost mind.

How can you not know
What a scene breakdown is?
You're clueless at tech?

You telling me how
To do my job is like a
Nun giving sex ed.

This is for venting.
We always have at least one
Poetry/vent thread.

Better to face it
With humor and brevity
Than it is to dwell.

After all, if we
Cannot vent to our comrades,
What outlet is left?

Dear God, what a pair.

At first night, SM

Gives gifts and cards to
cast. Not even thank-you to
SMs. What a $%^# !
