Jebus, you're serious? I thought the whole submerged in glass was a joke.

It's tempting to combine things. In my experience, it usually confuses the audience. Strive for clarity.


Thank you. Again.

Luckily I had good teachers and wasn't planning on combining things. This post may be some of the best advice ever given to folks in our art.

I think a surgical mask at least would be a good idea. I have heard that the "fiberglass lung" is a lot like black lung, and my grandpappy had some scary stories about black lung.
I think the idea you have is probably the best one for method.
Still pretty scary.

WOW!! That was a pretty BIZARRELY SCARY stunt you performed last night with the strait-jacket and broken glass. There were lots of gasps of "OMG!!!!"s flying around the theatre, in case you didn't notice! Absolutely riveting entertainment, thank you very much.

While we can laugh at the recently posted absurd additions to this stunt: razorblades, spit, angry ducks, etc....I just keep thinking about Harley's post.

Just to clarify, I in no way wish to demean the performer or the performance. Also I do not want to stifle innovation. Just hope that we can all work to deliver better performances, not muddled and jumbled shows where the audience is confused rather than astounded.
