Regardless of preparation, the quality of interpreting for musical theatre rarely exceeds the quality of the Middle School’s sound system.
Interpreter terms that we all understand (on-going).
Vampire Week: When you never seem to drive to, or home from, or in-between appointments while the sun is up.
“Wow you look tired!”
I had a Vampire Week.
I would say “they could not pay me enough to take that appointment,” but I would like to give them the chance.
When the moment arrives, and it will, remember-we are interpreters, we use our hands, sure, but not our fists. We use our words.
VRI: Clean shirt required, pants optional.
Interpreting. It’s hard. So you will cry. It’s important. So you will try.
Saturdays are for sleeping off interpreting from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. in the emergency room.
