On the Exclusion of Our Audience

“The audience didn’t care much, but we sure had a good time.”

“That one was just for us.”

These kinds of ideas don’t do much to get other artists excited about stepping on stage with you. It builds camaraderie in the short term, but it’s not why any of us got into this business. 

As for me,

I will always value the audience’s enjoyment of a show over the comfort of the cast. And likewise, I will never argue that it is good show for the cast to perform for each other at the exclusion of their audience.
