"The more things change the more they stay the same". That is not me of course.That is a quote from the late French journalist and novelist Jean-Baptiste Alphone Karr. That quote has been on my mind a lot these past few days. Now we all know that change is not only inevitable but necessary in life. Without it we would remain in the same place day after day with no end in sight. That my friends is no way to live. Over the years the theatre has seen many ups and downs. That is true of any business. There will always be people who support it just like there will always be people who will condemn it and mock it for what it is. ENTERTAINMENT. Like how I wrote that with all capitol letters? I thought you might. Yes I know theatre is not for every one. Although I will say most of my closest friends love the theatre. I guess that's why we are friends. Well that and they are decent and honest people. Not too many of those out there I can tell you that. It seems like everybody these days are out for themselves. Everybody wants to make a buck. I mean that's why people get into show business right? Fame and fortune. Yes that may be true but there are people out there that would do it for free if they could. I know I would. Of course we all need to eat. I guess that's where the term "Starving Artist" comes from doesn't it? Oh well. We can't all be rich. However we can all be happy if we want too. You just have to know where to find it.
