There was a time where I was young and considered myself pretty much invincible. As a child, I would crawl onto the roof of the garage and then jump off down to the lawn just to have that exhilaration of “flying”. Later on, as I grew up in the Rocky Mountains, I found that the easiest way down from climbing was to jump. Mind you, there were plenty of times where I underestimated the distance. This along with crazy mountain biking trips, full contact medieval styled combat, and many other joint
I love what I do. I've been doing the same show now for almost five years. This is the first time I have ever worked on a permanent show. The closest I had come to doing so before was about two and a half months on Phantom of the Opera when it made a stop at the theater where I worked. Before this adventure, I worked in road houses or for rental staging companies. Yeah, I got used to seeing something different quite often (even if it all is pretty much the same).

While it deals with PM for projectors, the same philosophy applies to all of the equipment in the theater. At least with keeping my projectors running I'm not dealing with life safety issues, but since it is an
This week I had a moment to beat myself up. OK, so not everyone thinks that I was actually needing to beat myself up, and they are probably much more correct than I am. I love what I do and I love to talk about it. My wife usually gets glassy eyed as I tell her about work (she's not a theater person, never has been). In fact, besides my family, my work is my life. I spend more time on CB than I do any other site.
Anyhow, I have never had any qualms about teaching people how
