A thoughtful rabble-rouser. That’s what I hope I am. I believe that art is entertainment and that entertainment is art. I believe that keeping our mouths shut in the name of getting along only destroys our culture. I believe that performers working our ASSES off and turning down a bunch of other gigs because we love the new music our local composers are creating — believing we can collaboratively make magic — is better than apologizing for not practicing or rehearsing enough because we have too many irons in the fire. I believe this manifesto is more interesting than my personal bio. I hope this at least nominates me for inclusion as a Crazy Jane.
