“There are no wasted opportunities. There are no dead end jobs while you’re waiting to do theatre. It’s all fodder. It’s all theatre. You are a scientist of human interaction; it’s the raw material of being an actor. Take those moments to grow as a student of your craft.”
I included this sentiment of mine in a class I just led for the CASE / Cleveland Play House MFA program. It’s true for them, for me, and probably you as well.
