Theatre folks – We're nothing if not passionate

Okay, so, it’s possible that you already knew this, but theatre people?  They have a tendency to be passionate about things.

Not all things.  But some things.  And there’s not a specific list of what those things are, it in fact (as you would expect) differs from person to person.  But here’s the thing, when I theatre person cares about something, they seem to do with it with gusto.

Take for example the comments raging at the Summerworks blog over a promotional video called Expression.

People REALLY care about this.  They are raging, some at the video, some at the other commenters, some likely at the world.  Is it bad that this makes me laugh a little bit, or does it just mean that as a member of the theatre community I can appreciate our quirks?

The second promotional video release was Interpretation, it will be interesting to see what kind of a reaction it gets.  Someone named Naomi has already left a comment that made me giggle, but I’m concerned that people won’t realise it’s a tongue in cheek answer.

Time will tell…
