Actually really cool!
An Englishman, a Frenchman, a Spaniard and a German are all standing watching a street performer do some excellent juggling. The juggler notices that the four gentlemen have a very poor view, so he stands up on a large wooden box and calls out, “Can you all see me now?”
Took me about ten minutes to finally understand this
stupidest/most awesome joke ever
if the broadway and theatre community dislikes bootlegs so much and don’t want people filming their shows they need to work on making theatre a more accessible form of media by filming shows professionally because you know they talk a lot about being a very open welcoming community but don’t do anything to make that community welcoming to people who can’t afford to see shows or people who live in rural areas and are literally unable to attend shows at all
Hm. I have to say, I disagree with this sentiment. While it would be nice to be able to see shows more often than I do, I do not think it is the responsibility of the theatre community to film every production on Broadway. Simply because theatre is not meant to be on film…that is why film and theatre are two separate things. Actually going to see a show, physically being in any theatre, is an experience that cannot effectively be recreated on film. There is a bond between actors and audience that is different every single night. If theatre was really meant to be on film, then those actors would do it once and be done with it and not do it eight times a week.
Did I love when MTV aired Legally Blonde? Absolutely! Was the PBS recording of The Light in the Piazza wonderful? Yes it was. But when talking about that show with a friend the other day I said I hadn’t seen it…and honestly, I haven’t! Not really.
On a different note, regarding bootlegs in general, I totally get that it’s very expensive and not accessible to people not near New York. I run into both of those problems. But when you think about it, with bootlegs you’re essentially stealing the hard work that these actors are putting into their performances. I’m currently making my living as an actor. And while I am by no means even close to being on Broadway, if everyone has a mentality that it’s too expensive to go and see a show and why bother when they can just get it on a bootleg and watch it for free…then there isn’t going to be any theatre for anyone to bootleg. Good art deserves compensation. It’s worth something.
