The paradox of this directory is that the structure resembles the organization of virtual theatre website. I discovered it rather late -- spectator is this virtual machine of the show.
Shows, that's what I do -- I direct... Direct what? The Spectacle. (Even when it's Chekhov). Spectacle is what takes place in the head (heart) of you, dear, the spectator. You came for this experience and don't care how it's done. In fact, you shouldn't know how it's done.- Help, Mr. Philosopher!
"Showbusiness"? What do we mean? Business of showing? Showing what? I should go back to public page and work this issue from there.
ARISTOTLE. Yes? What? Alaska? I don't know this place. Is it in Turkey? Anatoly? No, I don't remember....
-Hello? This is a long distance call! Aristotle? May I speak to... I don't know his last name! Operator! Wait! ....
ARISTOTLE. Anatoly, don't shout! Put down the phone.
