chromolume:

I want a show with an entirely unknown cast, except Patti LuPone is a random company member. So while the main actors are sorting their problems out out, Patti LuPone is in the background churning butter or something. And no one makes any reference to her at all. She isn’t even credited. Audiences will question if she was even really there.

I’ll take “jeanine tesori songs about buses” for $600, alex

Alright let’s all take a moment to remember how astoundingly good “Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812” was…

.

Thank you for taking this moment with me.

Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812

(aka, an electro-pop opera based on a “scandalous slice” of Leo Tolstoy’s War and Peace, performed in a restaurant with the actors performing around the patrons.)

One of the things you have to learn very quickly if you’re going to survive in the theater ­– or in any of the arts – and I mean the serious arts – is that the way people respond to you, to what you do, doesn’t necessarily have very much to do with the quality of what you’ve done. Some of your best stuff can be condemned and some of your less-ambitious things will sail right through. You can’t worry about that stuff. As long as you do your own job as honestly and well as you possibly can, you can’t be responsible for the minds of critics or the taste of an audience. You can’t be responsible for those things because you’re not a servant. Edward Albee (x)
