If You Need an Earpiece, You Don't Belong on Stage
OnStage Blog: The other day, I came across an article over at the New York Post entitled Pacino’s not alone: Willis needs an earpiece to remember his lines too. The article is quite self-explanatory. It goes into extensive detail about something that is becoming notoriously recurrent in professional theatre. A couple of years ago, in the Broadway show Misery, Bruce Willis apparently had needed an earpiece throughout the production in order to remember his lines while performing. It went on to say how he wasn’t alone among Hollywood actors who went from the screen to the stage, as Al Pacino– in a production of China Doll – also needed a similar earpiece so he would be capable of performing in the show.
