Actors can be exhausting.
Whether it’s constantly facing rejection, persevering through endless hours of rehearsals, or fearing bad reviews, actors’ dedication to their work can sometimes pose challenges to their relationships.
Such was the case for a boyfriend who wanted to be supportive but couldn’t get into the “theatre scene.” He took to Reddit for advice on how to remain supportive and enthusiastic about a craft he wasn’t passionate about.
Though his definition of “theatre star” was a dedicated college student beginning her musical theatre career, people were still quick to chime in with their two cents.
Some thought it was time for him to Get Out and Stay Out.
If he can’t love you at your improv show, he doesn’t deserve you at your Broadway debut.
