Broadway Weather Forecast: Spring Is Here! High of 58 (yay!) with showers off and on throughout the day.

Quote of the Day: In theatre, all the "editing" gets done before-the-fact. Actors and creatives, is this a welcome challenge, terrifying, or somewhere in between?

"There's nowhere to hide in the theatre. You can't be the one in rehearsal who doesn't know their lines."
-- Keeley Hawes (via BrainyQuote)

What we're reading: We could lie and report that we're being studious and re-reading John Steinbeck's OF MICE AND MEN for the first time since high school... but James Franco just wrote a column for Vice about his Broadway experience since the show began previews. It's an interesting perspective from a film actor on the process of creating theatre, and it's filled with observations such as: "With a classic play--especially if the writer is dead, like John Steinbeck is dead--it's the opposite. The words are holy; do NOT fug with them." Enjoy!
