Apparently the only thing you CAN do when you're in tech is quit two days before the first preview to shoot a pilot.
"You travel alone because other people are only there to remind you how much that hook hurts that we all bit down on. Wait for that one day we can bite free and get back out there in space where we belong, sail back over water, over skies, into space, the hook finally out of our mouths and we wander back out there in space spawning to other planets never to return hurrah to earth and we'll look back and can't even see these lives here anymore. Only the taste of blood to remind us we ever existed. The earth is small. We're gone. We're dead. We're safe." -John Guare, Landscape of the Body

I'm NOT getting married today and I won't dance - don't ask me. Anyone can whistle, though, but not backstage because I'M IN TECH, dammit!

"SHOOT a pilot"???? Oh, I thought it was just the gay actor announcing he had a new boyfriend. All he said was, "I got a pilot". While a pilot may not be as good a catch as a doctor, I guessed he was justified in leaving the show for his new love.

OMG! I just got a hang nail, but I'M IN TECH!
"All I ask of you is one thing: please don't be cynical. I hate cynicism -- it's my least favorite quality and it doesn't lead anywhere. Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you're kind, amazing things will happen." Conan O'Brien

I would go to the doctor to have my shoulder put back in place after a crazy dance move, but I'M IN TECH! Just chop it off before my entrance! That's what Marilyn would have done.

I'm glad Tony Yazbeck's character got a pilot. I cringed when he sang last week. I'll have to rewatch the episode to count how many times Karen said I'M IN TECH.

I like how she gave Dev two reasons why she couldn't answer his proposal, and I'M IN TECH had priority over his cheating.

At least the writers are true to their concept :P. Is this show anything like real life?

I would bitch relentlessly about a show I hate but can't stop watching BUT I'M IN TECH!
No good can possibly come from using this vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit. You should get off of it and warn others away. You should make sure your children and grandchildren know what a corrupt and morally bankrupt institution it truly is.

In his Broadway World comment on his Tony nomination, Danny Burnstein essentially said that, even though he is IN TECH, he will be happy about the fact that he is a Tony nominee. Yep, even IN TECH.

No, life stops when you're not in Tech!

I thought last night's episode was one of the more realistic ones. Of course no one has ever played 16 whole bars of music at once on the first day of tech, and there would be a lot more computers and wasted time.

But they can completely halt TECH for a sparkler-adorned birthday cake for the director to be rolled on stage and then eaten, in full costume, no less. DURING TECH.

The actors can also stay up late partying and having impromptu singing competitions while they are IN TECH!
Jimmy, what are you doing here in the middle of the night? It's almost 9 PM!

If you have ever been in an important show like a Broadway show...
Especially your first Broadway show...
You would know that life does stop while you are in tech.
You don't want to give anything else your energy because you want to focus it into the show. And make the show a success. Let's face it. Lot's of people put their life on hold when a musical is opening

I think that being in tech was a totally legitimate excuse for putting everything else on hold. So get real people.

I obviously haven't done Broadway but my theatre experinece was that tech is very difficult and doestake all of your life when you're on the production side of the piece--but much much less so for the actors--it's boring and they have to spnd hours on standby but it doesn't fill up every second of the day...
