Theatre Art Life
The last few weeks have been a pretty good lesson in how much money chaos costs. I am a fairly organized person. I like to have systems. I like everything to have a place. I like to have spares and backups. The funny thing about moving is that it throws all your systems so far out of whack.
During my time as a Department Head of Lighting, I had the privilege of managing a group of amazing technicians who ran the eight followspots used in our show. I've had to interview and audition many people to fill those positions. Some didn't make the cut during the interview, others in the audition, and still others I needed to terminate because they simply could not run the followspot at the level required for the show.
