Toirleac O'Brien eat your heart out

Anyone can throw together an old musical, rejigging the words of Abba songs (can you see their bums Fernando), but few have the balls to stand up in front of a packed audience; to face the glare of the arc lights; to stand at the mercy of angry critics; and to grapple with self-doubt as you cast it all aside and for that brief moment live it as though it was real. This is not theatre, this is life.
And as you step back into the crowds and forget about it all again, remember that super trouper lights are gonna find you.....
