Friday Tip

Dear Constant Reader,

There’s a nor’easter howling outside, but I’m snug in The Manor with a cup of tea and big white purring cat. If you’ve got to go out, be careful!

Here’s your tip!

Inclement weather can really mess with show day. Plan ahead!

  • Call the venue or your producer before you leave to make sure the show is still on.
  • Allow extra travel time.
  • If you’re worried about your costumes in transit, line your suitcase with a big trash bag.
  • Pack an extra act, just in case a performer can’t make it. You could be a hero!
  • The audience may be smaller than expected, but they deserve the same great show as a packed house. Maybe even better.
  • Stay safe and dry!
