Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing."   - Muhammad Ali News and Notes: - 'What even is theatre now?': the fringe artists left out in the cold - Theatre’s Left Behind Freelancers - Mass Resignation: A Letter from the Victory Gardens Playwrights Ensemble USITT - Website / Facebook USITT Education Commission - Facebook

Questions, Comments, Suggestions - Show Email - Remember me when I am gone away, Gone far away into the silent land; When you can no more hold me by the hand, Nor I half turn to go yet turning stay. Remember me when no more day by day You tell me of our future that you plann'd: Only remember me; you understand It will be late to counsel then or pray. Yet if you should forget me for a while And afterwards remember, do not grieve: For if the darkness and corruption leave A vestige of the thoughts that once I had, Better by far you should forget and smile Than that you should remember and be sad.  -  Christina Rossetti (1830 - 1894) News and Notes: - IATSE Endorses Joe Biden for President of the United States - Derby Theatre: 'Theatres can be a key ally in regenerating communities' - Supply companies: ‘We’re planning for the worst and hoping for the best’ The - 'Glimmer of hope': leading performers return to London's Wigmore Hall - ‘The Expendables’ Studios Nu Boyana in Bulgaria Re-Opens USITT - Facebook

Show Sponsored by the Archiving Technical Theater History Facebook Group Questions, Comments, Suggestions Show email: “My wife's the reason anything gets done, she nudges me towards promise by degrees. She is a perfect symphony of one our son is her most beautiful reprise. We chase the melodies that seem to find us until they're finished songs and start to play. When senseless acts of tragedy remind us that nothing here is promised--not one day. This show is proof that history remembers. We live in times when hate and fear seem stronger. We rise and fall and light from dying embers--remembrances that hope and love last longer. And love is love is love is love is love is love is love is love cannot be killed or swept aside. I sing Vanessa's symphony. Eliza tells her story.
