Coming Together

I am beginning to understand why actors are paid more money than they seem worth. There is a lot of waiting around, and one has to give up a great deal of one's autonomy, freedom, and self-determination in order to be an actor. And then, as if by magic, one's trust in one's director begins to pay off. Things, as if by magic, begin to come together. As if by magic, they begin to look like a play.

It is a phenomenon that is rather exhilarating to behold. And behold, the beast, a scholar, begins to fancy himself a thespian.

I have always found the stage rather magical. Now I know it to be.

The dates are up.
Pick one that is right for you.
