agree wholeheartedly. veterans of the business tend to be the most cynical folk around. everyone still holds on to some of that young love for the art form but everyone eventually learns that, at the end of the day, its a business. one that’s cold, callous, selfish, and ultimately, uncaring. after over a decade i left the business for a lot of these reasons. additionally my love of my work led to the destruction of my body. god forbid anyone ever look past the “glitz and the glamor” and take a look at the massive safety violations happening all across the country. even at the top this stuff happens. “articles” like this perpetuate this fantastic idea of what it’s like to be involved in theatre without having much sense of how the business actually works.
Response to What’s Your Favorite Music Lyric Of All Time?:
So, so you think you can tell Heaven from Hell, blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell? Did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
Did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage? How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We’re just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have we found?
The same old fears.
Wish you were here.
