The prediction we make about how we are going to feel in some future situation is called ‘affective forecasting,’ and all of the evidence suggests that we are terrible affective forecasters…What [psychologist Stanley J. Rachman] finds is that the actual experience of the thing that was feared is a lot less scary than the person imagined.
a footnote from Malcolm Gladwell’s “David and Goliath”

I like how plays are protean in that way — they are shape-shifters on the page, and even more so when actors and a director get involved. Each production is unique and suggests a different answer to the question of what the play is about.

Can’t wait to chat with playwright Anna Ziegler at tonight’s Bullpen Session: “I’ve Written a Play, Now What?”

Bullpen Sessions are a monthly meeting, in a comfortable setting, where theater professionals are invited to talk about their experience on a specific topic of interest for pre-professional and emerging artists. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions, engage in open discussion, and share their experience on the topic. Bullpen Sessions will address basic questions about the industry, share best practices, and build community.

I think as a playwright I’m trying to translate abstractions into some sort of emotional truth. It’s only an attempt, but I think there’s value in the attempt, and it begins with me, the playwright, and then extends to the director and the actors … and finally to the audience. Maybe it works, maybe it doesn’t, but it’s helpful, to me at least, to remember that everything I think I know is subject to translation.
Thrilled to be talking with Rajiv Joseph at tomorrow’s Bullpen Session!

The Farm Theater’s First Bullpen Session: Erin Mallon

And a wonderful quote from Erin Mallon, who will be speaking about How to Be a Multi-Disciplinary Artist at tonight’s first ever Bullpen Session at The Farm Theater:

I’m a big believer in “as if” thinking. Act as if the things you want are inevitable. Keep working and carry on as if they’ll come true any moment. With enough belief and steady steps they eventually do.

The Farm Theater’s First Bullpen Session: Daniel Talbott

In honor of the first ever Bullpen Session at The Farm Theater …a fantastic quote from Daniel Talbott, who will be speaking tonight about How to Be a Multi-Disciplinary Artist:

It’s just home, family, we’re all trying to support each other, laugh, and work as hard as possible with as much love as possible, and do the best theater we can, and then get back up and try to do it even better and go deeper, open up more and more, the next time. I know we all have to make a living and that we have to make choices, but when “career” starts being more important than people and relationships, I don’t know how you can honestly, truly do work anymore.
