Logic of Theatre

2 Mar

“In is down, down is front, out is up, up is back, off is out, on is in, and of course – right is left and left is right. A drop shouldn’t and a block and fall does neither. A prop doesn’t, and a cove has no water. Tripping is okay. A running crew rarely gets anywhere. A purchase line will buy you nothing. A trap will not catch anything. A gridiron has nothing to do with football. A strike is work (a lot of work). And a greenroom, thank god, usually isn’t. Now that you are fully versed in theatrical terms- Break a leg…but not really.”
