BLOGATHON 2006 ENTRY #28: Pretty Dresses

Reporting From Glendale, California.

One time I told my friend Trevor that working in the theater is like being married to an abusive husband. He treats you like shit and smacks you around, but instead of leaving him you say, "He's really not as bad as you think. And he promised never to hit me again. And he always buys me such pretty dresses."

And you stay in the marriage because those dresses sure are pretty and he really did promise he'd stop abusing you, right?

Okay, theater people, how many times in your life have you felt this way, and what, for the love of God, have you done to overcome it (if you have at all)?

    I've decided that not only do I like the pretty dresses, which I get about once every two years, but that it really DOESN'T HURT AT ALL, REALLY, IT DOESN'T!
