You kept book for me
in my absence, kindly, but
marked my script in pen.

Director screaming:
Cast shook up for taped run.
Glad I'm in the booth!

An ASM who
can't come until opening?
A very odd offer.

Not very useful.

When I'm kept out of
the loop, I can not do the
job you hired me for.

Please empower me
to lead this show and cast, not
limit that ability.

Hi Michelle!

This is a great Haiku to describe what you (we) went through on this last production! May I use it?

I was a pleasure working with you and thank you for telling me about this website!

A found space is neat
but when I call, confusion.
You didn't book it?

Problems with your show?
Answer should not be to cause
problems with my show.
You will have to sing for your supper & your mortgage, your dental coverage & your children's shoes, over & over again while people in desk jobs roll their eyes the minute you start to complain. So it's a good thing you like to sing.
