That is the essence of theater – showing off.
Auditions are showing off; rehearsal is showing off; and performance is showing off.
Theater folks are people who relish doing what most of us are told to never do – show off.
The difference is that theater folks appreciate everybody else’s showing off too.
We enjoy seeing what others can do. Sometimes we aspire to gain that skill; other times we simply admire the ability – knowing it is beyond us. It’s all good.
That’s what makes us different from other people.
We are just a bunch of people crying out – LOOK WHAT I CAN DO!!!!
