In the ambulance,
I explained one final time
why we don't touch jacks.

Your constant presence
despite your diphtheria
has floored us all.

The techs are on break.
From the stage: "Hey guys, watch this!"
Damn! Sound the alarms!

Late again? Don't worry.
We weren't planning to rehearse.
We show up for fun.

My catch twenty-two:
How to scold late actress who
Sleeps with producer?

How to earn true scorn?
Make the big burly stage crew
Wear little booties.

Booth windows are glass.
This means they are transparent.
Please, put some clothes on.

Thursday matinee
Understudy program slips
Flutter like petals

After performance
Scattered clothing covers the
dressing room like moss

That crash was quite loud
considering it happened
at climax of show.

Breeze through crossover
Makes pretty billows in cyc
As interns run past

Mad you can't find prop?
"Well, who touched it last?" "I did."
Keep track of your stuff!
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

Absent? You're Absent?
You've had the dates since April!
"Not a big deal"? Really!?

Company members
please note: eating cupcakes is
not "running my lines".

Tea? You want a tea?
I'm busy. Green room is that way.
Go make it yourself.

Why must you switch schools?
Too few boys can sing and act
Who will be Anthony*?

I hope freshmen act
I hope new freshman can sing
Wanted: new male lead

*Boy leaving should be
Anthony from Sweeney Todd
But he is leaving
Don't be so reverent about reality. It's just a trick, done with mirrors.

Yes it makes sense
the director wants to hear sound cues
before the audience does

Your face burns because
Clorox wipes are NOT to be
used for make-up wipes.

It's not a film set.
I don't do "craft services."
"Vending service" outside.

Why aren't you wearing
The costume you were given?
It was too wrinkled.

If you ever spit
Prop food on the floor, you can
Clean it up yourself.
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.

You are still on book
I shouldn't have to tell you:
SCRIPT, NOT SUGGESTION
