A Day In The Life Of A Ticket Broker

American mystic Joseph Campbell said, "Follow your bliss." As I sit here at my computer I am finding out how true that statement is. I came to this city to pursue my dream of working in the theatre. Now some 20 years later I feel that I am on the verge of finally making those dreams come true. Sure there have been ups and downs over the years. Nobody ever said it was going to be easy. But through it all I have been lucky enough to remain steadily employed until my big break arrives. Since 2004 I have been working at Applause Theatre Service as a ticket broker. Just like theatre it too has its ups and downs. September 11 almost destroyed the industry. Now over ten years later the economy is in the worst shape it has been in a very long time, and yet the phones keep ringing day in and day out. In the worst of times we need theatre to put a smile on our face. Isn't that what it's all about?
