Dear Constant Reader,
Things are not so great right now and I wasn’t sure I could come up with a Friday tip. As usual Scratch came to my rescue with this one.
Hope for the best; prepare for the worst.
Although this is what I’m doing in my personal life, it also translates to performers and producers. What could go wrong? You forget a costume piece. A performer no-shows. The audience isn’t what you expected. &c. And then what do you do about it?
Hopefully everything will go smoothly, but you’ve got a plan in place in case they don’t.
