A few weeks ago I sent in something about how there’s a new manager at my store and that she’s really nice. Well this whole time I thought she was a shift lead but she’s actually the new ASM! Which makes me even happier because our old ASM was two-faced to all the employees and there were several times where she got judgmental with me and really made me anxious, and that old ASM was also my direct supervisor so it always freaked me out when I had to talk to her. But now we have this new ASM who is amazing! Last week she ordered Jimmy John’s for her lunch and asked me if I wanted anything too, and just last night she bought some candy and then shared it with me. I love her so much!
What's the best thing to see from an ASM who made a mistake? Whether it's a forgotten preset, a missed cue, or something that can't be fixed after it happened. In the show I'm doing now there's a series of things the crew has to do backstage that involves knocking stuff off a mantlepiece on stage and other technical magic, but I had a brain fart taking cues from my SM and half the things didn't happen during a performance. All I can really do is apologize and not do it again, but is that enough?
