Hello to all once again.  This is going to be just a really short thought to share.
Tim Robbins was talking on television this morning as I was preparing to leave for work and he made a really important statement that hits the nail right on the head in the performance arena.
I quote,
“Always imagine that your audience members have spent their last dollars to come to your show“.
What a superb way of looking at it.  They don’t have to be there but they are and for that you owe them.  You owe them a grateful RESPECT .  You owe them a great experience, they have spent their hard earned money.  Even if there is no cover charge they will still be spending their hard earned dollars to be at the venue whether it be on food or drinks etc etc. If you view your audiences with this outlook you will deliver your best. It will always be at the forefront of your mind “I must deliver the goods“.  It is a sign of your appreciation to them and in turn they will appreciate your efforts.  Remember in a performers life it is not all about you. It’s not what can the audience do for you, it’s what you can do for your audience.  Have fun and enjoy and they will enjoy their experience.
