Giving Standing Ovations
- "Look, it's the sponsor from the bank!"
No really—makes your applause mean something. Every show I see ends with a standing ovation, which is silly
. Not everything on a stage is excellent. I stand sometimes for really exceptional work, but it doesn't mean anything, because everyone stands for everything. So now those particularly great actors, or playwrights or violinists or whatever, won't know that they actually did a better job than most people do in their position. They'll just think they're average. That's not fair to them now is it. [photo
