If you wanted to make your mark on the next generation of stage managers, here's a big chance to do so.  I received the following today by email from Lawrence Stern, author of "Stage Management."  Mr. Stern has requested assistance from SMNetwork in the past and our replies were featured prominently in the 9th edition of "Stage Management."  This is your chance to contribute to the upcoming 10th edition!

Dear Kay,

 Working on the 10th edition of Stage Management and would really appreciate your help.

 What I need most is an anecdote about working with union personnel (any union other than AEA) in which you experienced discomfort, or a snag in production, or a cost overrun, due to a misunderstanding of union rules.

 Readers have asked for expanded discussion of what to expect when working for the first time with people in other unions.

 Thanks for your continuing help.

Lawrence

Please help him out with some replies!  I will link him to this thread so that he can keep an eye on us.

It occurs to me that you might not want to share these stories publicly.  If this is the case, you can also email stories to me and I'll forward them on to Mr. Stern.  Just please be sure to indicate how you'd like to be credited if the info is used in the final version.
