Landing 747’s

My friend and go-to director/collaborator Ron once gave me this fantastic advice after a rehearsal in which I was pushing, “acting”, trying to do too much…

“You don’t have to land a 747 on every line. Sometimes a line is just a line.”

He’s right. If it’s good writing, we in the audience will feel it. Don’t worry. You can just say the line (with a specific intention, of course).

If you feel something while delivering the line tonight, that’s cool. It’s a bonus.

But it’s certainly not a requirement. So please don’t lock in or obligate yourself to that emotional result.

Remember…It’s about them. Not you.

P.S. – Speaking of landing 747’s…“We’re all counting on you.”
