where actors, theatre folk and "civilians" come to share tips, tricks, home remedies and rituals
Telling tales, surviving self-tapes and traditional auditions, living in company housing! 20+ years as a professional actor/arts administrator from Birmingham, Alabama and married to a professional actor/arts administrator from Boston! Life as a married couple doing regional theatre for a living...Lord have mercy.
For some actors - nowhere is more sacred than our DRESSING ROOMS. Remember that photograph of Einstein's desk? Well that inspired me long ago to start a pictorial diary of my tables. And it could be useful when I am old and senile and my hubs tries to explain to me that I was an actor...in the meantime - enjoy my collection with some additions from pals on Broadway and across the country!
If you didn't already know - actors are professionals when it comes to staying healthy. You learn a lot tricks based on what items you see on your cast-mates' dressing tables. These tips and remedies will keep you in the game... The show must go on!!!
We are a unique collective of wack-a-doo weirdos. Yeah. We know... We have loads of superstitions and customs. We hold dear the rich history of the storytellers who proceeded us and we can take our rituals VERY seriously... both pre-show and post-show... You've heard of athletes who don't wash their socks? Yeah... a little like that...
