Friday Wisdom – The Theatre

Last night Heather and I went to see the traveling production of the musical Hamilton here in Reno. We loved it and this morning my thoughts are turning towards the theatre:

If all the world’s a stage – where is the audience sitting?

Just read about the set designer who got fired for not making anything. They said he didn’t make a scene …

Our local postal worker wants to become a comedian, but, I don’t know, his delivery is awful.

I acted in a play on a farm. It wasn’t good and we got mooed off stage.

I tried writing a script once but it just turned into a play on words.

My friend is opening a new shadow puppet theatre. The business plan says he’ll make a fortune – those are just the projected figures.

New paper reported a thief broke into the theatre and stole the spotlight.

I’ve been able to smuggle chocolate into movie theatres – I always have a few Twix up my sleeve.

We ended up leaving the play after the first act. The program said, “Act II – one year later” and we couldn’t wait that long …

I kept telling everyone that the Titanic would sink, but then they threw me out of the movie theatre.

Be nice to the lady selling pop corn – she’s made a lot of concessions.

Why do actors have great hair? They want the perfect part.

Is it me or do theater jokes always seem staged?

    I thought “mooed off stage” would be the funniest but the Titanic made me laugh out loud. Thanks for cheering me up every week.
