There was a moment during my end of year vacation when I realized that I really threw myself into creating theatre in different ways and didn’t even realize I was doing that. I worked on various projects that touched on commercial theatre, independent theatre and community theatre. I worked on cabarets, readings, festivals. All unique in their structures but with the same passion.
I was asked “why theatre?” in an interview with Theater in the Now. I answered that I ask myself this all the time because I do wonder. How did I get lucky to fall in love with this art form? How did I lucky to meet so many wonderful artists creating around the world? How did I get lucky to be able to do this as a career? Well, here’s an interesting thing about me. I don’t actually believe in luck. Luck to me is preparation plus opportunity. As it is for the many artists out in the world sharing their stories. It looks easy but the level of hard work, sweat and tears to put on a show is often not known.
I know. I enjoy interviewing the artists for this column. I know what they’ve done to get to where they are. So as we kick off 2017, let’s continue to create and share and support.
If you would like to share your current project being produced beyond Broadway, comment below or tweet me.
See you at the show!
