Do you eat before you go on stage or do you wait until after your performance to eat? I have to eat or else I get light-headed. There was a time when I ritualistically ate ramen noodles, but now I’ll have anything that’s dairy-free, non-greasy, and light.
The Boston Theatre Conference is focusing on the lively, lush and local aspects of our theatre community. What do you think? I think the most exciting niche is the fringe scene. The incorporation of circus, sideshow, cabaret, and burlesque elements is fascinating, entertaining, and has potential for major expansion.
