: Sorry, Jon. Not much time in Chicago area to do anything but attend to personal matters.
I understand. That's the same reason I didn't see you last time I was in LA.
: As far as inept production personnel is concerned, you said it. everyone out here is extremely frustrated with it. Even artists that have always touted the party line are getting fed up with them.
I think I'm one of those artists. I just find it hard to believe. We really DO need good managers, administrators, executives. We just don't have them now.
: Hopefully, the layoff won't last too long. I've been hearing about several shows that are being picked up for another season. Maybe some of the work will come your way.
The worst thing about layoffs is that when the work comes back, you can't get the people back. People gotta work. They can't sit around and live off of our best wishes and the government's dole. And of course the last time this happened, where did they go for work? LA. They became "The Chicago Mob."
SO we end up training new people to be fed into the LA system the next time around.
Running a studio in Chicago is like Don Quixote fighting windmills - romantic, but not very practical.
