"None of us suddenly becomes something overnight. The preparations have been in the making for a lifetime.- Gail Goodwin
Day 122: Attended the topical discussion on Theatre in LA at The Actors Network. Very very interesting discussion. As an actor who got started on the stage and really misses the energy and thrill that a live audience brings I've always found the dismissive attitude that many LA actors have towards the theatre to be perplexing. By the end of this discussion my perspective shifted a bit. Though I still believe there's nothing like cutting your teeth on a stage, I plan to be even more selective when submitting to plays choosing only those that are:

  1. Centrally located 
  2. Produced by a reputable theatre company
  3. Has a proven record of industry attendance
  4. Has a short run
Whether you choose to do theatre or not {this is a film/TV town after all} is a personal decision but either way I do hope more actors will learn to RESPECT the stage!
