Views On Going To The Stage Door
Posted 18 June 2013 - 10:47 PM
I don't stage door nearly as much as I used to when I was younger, now I only go to say hi to a handful of lesser known performers I've admired for years who know who I am. I hope I'm respectful and polite and don't cross any lines. So far no one has told me to bugger off! One even said hi to me way from the theatre when we bumped into each other randomly. I enjoy watching them and following their careers, I hope they appreciate my support.

The creepiest people I've ever encountered are the 'professional autograph' hunters.

Ive no idea why people still sign things for them, given they dont go to see the show.

I happened to be walking past the stage door of the Wyndham's earlier this evening (thankfully before Dan Radcliffe madness) quite literally as Kara Tointon was leaving the theatre - so asked, 'Can I have a picture Tara?'.

He could have said: "Tonight was a good audience, but not great, I usually expect more", but probably he is too polite for this.
Anyone watching Playhouse Presents at Sky Arts? There was an episode this season called Stage Door Johnnies. Hilarious, and a little bit sad. Charles Edwards playing the artistic director of the theatre is especially memorable.
I looked it up and is being repeated this Thursday so catch it if you have access to Sky.

Careful - over in the Passion Play thread Quentin Letts was denounced for making comments like that - but maybe it is allowed when it is about an actor rather than an actress ?

And I think comments clearly that are a bit of fun should be allowed, but then this is the internet....

I promise I'll find my marbles soon.
