late night thoughts

Broadway being afraid that filming and releasing shows would result in less people going to nyc is like sports teams being afraid that no one would come to their games if they were televised (which obviously isn’t a problem). It’s like this. You go for the experience but if you can’t be there you still get to be a part of it.

Thank you for listening to my TED talk on why we need a Netflix for Broadway shows.

“Hamilton, while ridiculously popular, is still a good show and we should stop hating on people for liking it,” I say into the mic.

The crowd boos. I begin to walk off in shame, when a voice speaks and commands silence from the room.

“She’s right,” they say. I look for the owner of the voice. There in the 3rd row stands: decent human beings.

Why should stage crew be appreciated
  • People think it is an easy job unlike acting, but everyone involved in the show ends up spending all their time in rehearsals
  • They do their job in the darkness, I mean how can they see anything?
  • They have to always be aware of actors, who might rush through backstage to get changed or something
  • “Who was in charge of that chair that is still oN sTaGe?”
  • They have to keep track of the time, as blackouts are short
  • “OMG I just made that actor move to the wrong spot on stage by putting set at the wrong angle IT’S MY FAULT” - just an everyday thought
  • They have to squeeze in tiny spaces when the entire cast is waiting behind the curtain
  • When ONE gets sick, the whole algorithm of moving set has to be changed even for one rehearsal
  • There is never enough of them backstage but you cannot have more because of the space
  • They are always there to help everyone backstage by fixing a dress or finding a prop and it is CUTE and SWEET
  • The amount of squeezed arms and feet overrun by a really heavy set is terrifying 
  • They are not mentioned pretty much anywhere WHY
  • They make stuff like FLYING ON STAGE happen
  • They are truly the ninjas of theatre
