"Listen to the stage manager and get on stage when they tell you to.
No one has time for the rock star bullshit.
None of the techs backstage care if you're David Bowie or the milkman.
When you act like a jerk, they are completely unimpressed with the
infantile display that you might think comes with
your dubious status.
They were there hours before you building the stage,
and they will be there hours after you leave
tearing it down.
They should get your salary, and you should get theirs."
Lollapalooza Alumni- Henry Rollins
In is down, down is front
Out is up, up is back
Off is out, on
And of course-
Left is right and right is left
A drop shouldn't and a
Block and fall does neither
prop doesn't and
A cove has no water
Tripping is OK
A running crew rarely gets anywhere
A purchase line buys
A trap will not catch anything
A gridiron has nothing to do with football
Strike is work (In fact
a lot of work)
And a green room, thank god, usually isn't
Now that you're fully versed in Theatrical terms,
But not really.
