commented on Ten Things Theaters Need to Do Right Now to Save Themselves
The main point is alcohol. Alcohol, oh and how about cigarettes? The theater has always been the home of Dionysus. In fact the theater is a giant bar. If you get drunk enough you will enjoy anything. The theater is a den of alcoholism. The problem is that alcoholics are unreliable egoists who all stab each other in the back, steal ideas from each other, and drown themselves in cycles of self importance then self hatred. It is hard to get out of the theater. My advice is, if you are really good looking and can seduce a lot of people, you can join a union and get a lot of money on TV, which is for high class whores. You will convince yourself that its about talent and you will have tons of money so you can treat people terribly in revenge for how you were treated in live theater (while drunk). The live theater is hard to do today because it is dead. God died at the turn of the last century. Theater is Dead. It's dead. Why not just go to a place that actually says "bar" so everyone is not fooled that you are just a bunch of lousy alcoholics. You can pay them for the actual service: alcohol. Thanks!
