Went to the theatre yesterday, saw Wicked. If you haven't had the opportunity to see it, try and get tickets! It was very enjoyable, music is great, the set is amazing and the actress who plays Elphaba is AMAZING!!!!

But here is my question...why do people take small children to the theatre and then proceed to let them talk, wander about, and try to explain a complex story all during the performance. As a "theatre" person this is a huge pet peev. When did people stop following general etiquette? When did it become all about the "me"?

Oh, yeah, and when did it become okay to take off your shoes and put your feet on the chair in front of you (with your toes right next to some poor patrons head)? ARGH! We need to teach a course in Theatre Etiquette before selling tickets to a play.

A small fallacy...

the reality is that I don't consider myself a "drama teacher" but rather a Theatre Educator. I know it's a semantics thing, but it works for me and that's all that matters.

Why start a blog? I don't know, it just seemed like the thing to do this morning. I often don't have much creative or interesting to say, but sometimes I do have a soapbox to stand on. So, here we go, off into the world of theatre, education and anything else that strikes my fancy.
