obies

I won a goddamned Obie last night. Stood up there behind the podium with my mind empty, mouth moving as always. Nancy was in the ladies room, came running in from the back of the hall. We did our Adrian/Rocky bit. "Nancy!" "I'm here, baby!" "Naaaannnncy!"

"Sustained Excellence of Direction". Sounds like I never wavered or bumped into the wall. Which I can assure you, is not true. It's sitting over there on the floor. The cat is, strangely, unimpressed. Full list of all the awards on www.playbill.com.

Got a suggestion that we should move the Equity conversation to a moderated message board. I have no idea what that means. My belief is that when conversations get to a certain pitch, they should be moved into a real-life sitting around a table type of situation. Everyone's busy, but we might be getting to that point.

Again, to repeat the call from last post, if there are Equity actors reading this, please weigh in with whatever opinion you have, or email me at john@clancyproductions.com.

And again, there are other issues to figure out. The always dapper and unflappable Brent Cox, he of the Dog and Pony Show, has a take on new audiences/old audiences in the comments below.

Congratulations, John C. I'm a long time admirer of your work, though I've never seen any of it. I've read everything about you and believe that the theater needs folks like you, though I've never met you. Keep fighting the good fight so that I can say that I've seen your work and then people will continue to think that I'm much hipper at cocktail parties because I claim to have spent $15 to watch struggling artists do their thing. Only, don't make it hurt too much, and don't make me feel uncomfortable. You're over there. I'm over here. You do the play, I make the glib comments. You struggle, i enjoy.

Thanks, Anon, but I'm not sure I like your deal...
