~ Must the show always go on?

~How do you feel about blind casting?

~What one piece of theatrical memorabilia would you most like to own?

Have you ever thought about how YOU might answer each of these questions?


Each week, for nearly two years, one theater aficionado and his diverse circle of friends have taken to social media to offer their thoughts on these and other (sometimes) burning issues. The most memorable comments—some surprising, some poignant, some hilarious—have been compiled here, combining for an insightful look into the always intriguing world of the theater. Interwoven throughout the questions and answers is the compelling true story of how a single night at the theater changed a man’s life forever, along with some one-of-a-kind encounters with the likes of Harold Prince and Ethel Merman.
