10 o’clock list: The Most Dehumanizing Things I’ve Done this Year in the Name of Theater

Theater, like all art, degrades the soul.

I mean that in a good way, I love theater, and I don’t buy into things like “dignity” and “self-respect” anyways. But man, have I gotten up to some depraved shit for the sake of a show. img_9261.jpg Continue reading
