commented on I Died of Happiness at The Little Mermaid Last Night
Christopher, thank you so much for your generous and vocal support of Seattle theater, I love how much you get into these shows! I'm sure my fellow stagehands who are working on this show appreciate the attention. However, I must correct one detail; when we are flying actors we are most certainly not "eating a bagel." Nor are we checking social media or engaging in any other distraction. All our attention is on the actor and flying system. Both hands on the lines at all times. The safety of those who are being flown is our absolute priority. We are trained professionals and we take our work very seriously because we know how one small error can lead to potential injury.
Remember, much of the theater magic you see at these shows is because of the highly skilled Union stagehands, not in spite of them. Thank you again for your continued support.

Wow, how far we've come from the Cascade no-man's-land of the early 90's. Oh, well. Long live the memory of the Family Affair, who gave out their fair share of non-promotional free sandwiches to the neighborhood. Bronko, rest his soul, must be undoubtably be turning in his grave.
