    6. And we also spend hours searching for the "perfect monologue" for auditions.

    7. Everyone wants an on-stage death scene, because then you can relax backstage for the rest of the show.

    8. But if you have to stay dead on stage for the rest of the show, it can be hell — you can't move, no matter what.
