I was wondering what does everyone do for a living on here? (student, retired, working etc....) Does anyone work in the theatre?

I'm a screenwriter / director who's currently working on a stage musical. If my professional title gets any longer business cards will be out of the question.

I'll be interested to see if others pipe in. It was only recently that I realized I'm an old fart on this board at the age of 44.

I'm a copy editor at a travel magazine in NYC.

Yes, I spend all day correcting other people's bad punctuation, misspellings, bad grammar, and other crimes against humanity.

I know, I KNOW.

LOL. Jordan, this is actually my first time being a full-time copy editor, though I've held various other journalism positions before. I've only previously been a copy editor as a fill-in, as a small part of my actual job, or as a volunteer. :) Or on the BWW boards...

When I first joined BWW back in the dark ages, I was an undergraduate theater student. I have since gone on to get my MFA and I work pretty regularly at small and mid-sized theaters in and around Chicago.

I grew up in the NYC suburbs going to Broadway shows. I still go back about once or twice a year. In fact, I'm seeing Book of Mormon on Saturday and Master Class on Sunday!

There was so much lacking in Rose and that's why she had to prove herself through her children. [interviewer]In ways that reminded you of your mom?[/interviewer]. Let's just say the role was very interesting for me. That one was the most interesting [I've ever played]" - Bernadette Peters (2018)

"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 recent college grad w/ a BFA in Directing for the Stage. I'm a director, choreographer, dancer, and stage manager.

But real estate and tending bar is what pretty much pays the bills! I like nice things.... I cant survive on a "theater persons" salary. People's Careers on here?
