I got there at 8:30am, the reported opening time...We need this. RT @MissLiberty: I made this for the world. And by the world, I mean @RebeccaSchinsky. http://t.co/67d0fmhu1k
Retweeted by Monica Byrne@RebeccaSchinsky @KatWithSword @MissLiberty Oh, bless you.I know I can do both. But. The theatre scene just feels like a slot machine: feeding energy, pulling lever, getting nothing.Should I worry about whether an agent/AD of Fancy Theatre will finally take me seriously or should I dream of the towers of Yazd. GEE DUNNOLike...who gives a fuck about that shit in this world? American theatre is an institution with its head up its ass. Shrug. Move on.Two months traveling the world puts things in perspective. Like how petty, small, and dysfunctional the world of American theatre is.Spending my first morning home getting tested at @DurhamHealthNC. Did you know they offer free testing? Git it!
