The best part of doing summer theater is: Getting out of the hot city and exploring a new place.
The most challenging job in show business I ever had was: Performing Pirates of Penzance at Glimmerglass Opera one summer in 102 degree weather on a two show day without air-conditioning. Most of us had on thick wool costumes and boots, the ladies: corsets and full dresses, all of us drenched in sweat, actors dropping like flies while everyone in the audience panted and fanned themselves like crazy people.
