Someone asked me to remove something from my blog. I did it because they asked, but maybe I shouldn’t have. I wrote a mild opinion about a show. It wasn’t even a negative opinion. Just an opinion. With a positive follow-up.
I guess I’m more irked that I let someone else dictate what I should or shouldn’t write about.
I work in the theatre. I have nearly my entire life. I have strong feelings about things. I always will. The truth is that I didn’t write what I really felt. I saved the truth for conversation with my friends who were familiar with the show. On top of that, I believe that the arts are supposed to spark conversation. Why does one person find something brilliant and the next find it tragic? Better to have an opinion then not, I think.
Well, I was bullied into not having an opinion about something.
