 M is for the million things she gave me.
 O means that she's only growing old.
 T is the tears she shed to save me
 H is for her heart of purest gold.
 E is for her eyes of love lights shining
 R means right and right she'll always be....


Put them all together they spell"MOTHER"--
The word that means the world to me!   :)


Happy Mothers Day!

After I made the "it's raining here" post.  It really started to pick up.  We had a couple of really loud cracks of lightning and the power went off for about 45 minutes.  Poor Bear was shaking like a leaf.

Did I mention about all the weight I'm losing?  I can't say I recommend a  high stress diet but it sure does the trick.  My jeans are so baggy I think they are going to slide off my hips.

Been tardy all weekend so sorry, But working which was unusual for me.

Question for DR BEN or anyone else who is a member of Actor's Equity.

I saw a movie where one of the actors was appearing in a Broadway musical in a lead role. Only to be fired the day after "opening night" because they got bad reviews. The fired actor walks into the theater to find they they have been replaced.

I told my friend that I was with that it was impossible. Actor's Equity would never permit it.  Even so they would have to be paid off with the remainder of the contract wouldn't they?

Can someone fill in the blanks here?

SPOILER RE THE MOVIE MICHAEL S SAW













I haven't seen the film, but the bigger logic jump as I understand it is that the character was a highly paid model hired to do the musical, and then after getting fired is back being a singing waitress.  Is this what indeed happens in the film?

That can happen.  The actor must be paid four weeks of pay, however.  There's always an out.  On both sides.

But that's not to say that the actor and Equity can challenge the producers, but people can be fired at any time while the show is in rehearsal or performance.

Petting the dolphin - is that anything like jumping a shark?

So one can be fired just because of bad reviews?? Wow! I thought there must have been better protection for the actor.

I knew there must be some kind of contract pay off.

I think the theater they used at least for the exterior shots was the Music Box as you can see the Helen Hayes across the street,

You can be fired for any reason.  And you don't have to be informed as to what that reason is.

However, to fire someone at any time during the process is always a tricky situation for both sides.  Does the actor "admit" to being untalented?  Does the producer admit to hiring someone untalented?  Better to "leave the production due to creative differences" behind the scenes, rather than be fired publicly.

I had a wonderfully wonderful time at THE FULL MONTY this afternoon.  The cast was first rate.  Even the actor who I don't care for personally, was very good in the role of Jerry.  It is interesting that the actor playing Malcolm, who was terrific, is said to be one of the more homophobic actors in our theater community.  Still is romantic duet with Ethan was one of the many highlights of the afternoon.

Congrats on the new clothes and sheets, DR Jose.  I've been buying cheap T-shirts to wear since I don't have time to do laundry.  Maybe on Thursday night when I'm home I can get a load or two done.

I don't know if they have Eckerd's Drugs up where you are Danise, but I just bought 4 T-shirts for $10 there. Good deal!

So it's true, Catholics do have more fun -- I'll convert, so I can go to that church!  

LOL, Miss K. Maybe I should have said "en masse"! ;D

Rule 32 (E)  of my Equity handbooks reads:  "Either party may terminate the contract at any time on or after the date of the first public performance of the play by giving the other party 14 days written notice...."

If they want the actor to improve....they must (after the first 10 days of public performance) give him notes about how he is failing to perform as directed  If he does not conform by the end of the next performance - and a few other rules etc....he can be given written notice.

Once he has been fired he cannot be required to perform the part or report to the theatre (unless Equity otherwise orders).

Another question for the NYCers.

A few years ago there was the reality show FAME one of the prizes he received was a lead role in the off-broadway production of Fame on 42nd Street. I did some googling and saw that he did not appear in it. Haremm Lee (?) I think was his name. Anyone know what happened?
