Broadway Basics
 
 
In is down, Down is front
Out is up, Up is back
Off is out, On is in
Right is left, Left is right
A Drop shouldn't and a Block and Fall does neither
A Prop doesn't and a Cove has no water
Tripping is okay
A Running Crew rarely gets anywhere
A Purchase Line will buy you nothing
A Trap will not catch anything
Strike is work - in fact, lots of work
And a Green Room, thankfully, usually isn't
Now that you're fully versed in theatrical terms,
'Break a Leg!' - but not really

  1. To which I would like to add: A theater is a venue while theatre is an art form.
