A Quote I'd Forgotten

Maybe you forget things a lot when you've lived a long time in Lotusland, but I just stumbled across this apt classic in Steven Leigh Morris' recent piece about theater ghosts and superstitions:
“Doing theater in L.A. is like building a snowman in Hawaii."
--Actor/director Jillian Armenante

Of course, theater is by nature ephemeral, ain't it? Just more so out West. All the nobler, I say.

Reminds me of a quote by Lawrence Barrett, "An actor is a sculptor who carves in snow." Perhaps Jillian Armenante is suggesting that the snow in L.A. has more yellow in it at times...
