"She doesn't like me!"
"She'll sabotage my change!"
Since when are we 12?
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

Broken, missing props--
Because I'm "method acting"
They're in the wrong place.

If you want to see
Some "method stage managing"
Put the props away.

You have special permissions.

Sent me email: "I'm sick
And wife is in Bangladesh -
Won't you please bring soup?"

What's fifty times worse--
Sick man with no wife around,
Or sick male actor?

You've been here months.  I'm
new, not stupid, for asking
where I can find things.

As is probably the woe of many of us New Englanders...

theatre is flooded
you left your shoes on the floor
they floated away

it flooded again
are shoes still left on the floor?
guess you'll go barefoot!
“I've never been paid a lot, but the theatre has kept me, and for that I shall be eternally grateful.” Tony Church

Are you kidding me?
Why don't you have a pencil?
Give this back to me.

Oh God, where is she?

No, I won't kick out
"that smelly, dirty, fat man":
that'd be our playwright.

Two times to touch props:
If it is yours, or if you
Want your blood on it.

Places NOW, children.
Why are you not in costume?
STOP talking backstage!
Art, in itself, is an attempt to bring order out of chaos. - Stephen Sondheim

We know you're clever.
We have a director
Please at least try his version of the play

You want line notes?
Here's one.
Learn your lines!

You don't need to tell me
your beats, your intentions, your choices
just do the damn blocking.

You are a Diva.
Do you deserve the title?
Do you have talent?

You are a Diva.
Graduating does not a
Professional make.

You are a Diva.
 I smile at the tantrums
I value my work.    ;D
