Rocco Landesman, former chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts, declared a new slogan for the organization when he came into office:
Since Rorschach Theatre was founded in 1999, the company has employed over 1000 theatre artists……who rehearsed for more than 6000 hours …to create 700 top-notch live performances.
Making art and making your living at making art is no small thing. Mr. Landesman is right. It’s work–lots of hard work. It’s exhausting and exhilarating. It’s daunting and deeply fulfilling. Most of our artists work multiple jobs to make ends meet. While that kind of life is never easy, we all do it for one very simple reason: We each believe very deeply that the art we make, the stories we tell, make a difference in our world. Whether we surprise, delight, provoke, inspire or just entertain, the few hours you spend in the dark with us will alter the path of your day in some small way.
And tomorrow when you wake up and the wisps of last night’s play float around in your morning coffee, we know that we’ve done our job… the art is working.
It has been a challenging year for all of us and your support is essential to our future. We look forward to seeing you at the theatre soon.
