ON ACTING: Back from the Holidays with a Note of Sympathy to Regional Actors

When you feel a lack of respect for your work and persona from New York and Los Angeles, I want you to know it is not a new thing.

In a Jan. 9, 2112 New Yorker article entitled "Rome and Us," the author quotes Cicero (a Roman Senator from the 1st Century BC) from one of his speeches in defense of his friend Plancius:

'They say you and a bunch of young men raped a mime in the town of Atina-but such an act is an old right when it comes to actors, especially out in the sticks.'

See, regional are not alone. It's been going on for thousands of years!
