“We do it for us.” These 5 phrases modified my angle in direction of performs and perhaps issues in my life as properly. I heard somebody say them throughout rehearsals and at first I did not like what I heard. It appeared like somebody was saying, “It would not matter what the viewers thinks, as a result of we’re doing this for us, not for them.” And it appeared like a copout.
For me, the entire level of a manufacturing was to work in direction of the very best end result. It was a status factor. We gave up evenings and weekends in order that audiences can be amazed by our creation and – presumably – carry us an ovation and fantastic critiques. Issues we may really feel validated about, issues we may boast about. However what I heard contradicted that and appeared to point that it was okay to not push as onerous.
