    Actually, he is exiting “stage left”. The POV for stage instructions is FROM the stage and not from the audience perspective. So…right becomes left and left becomes right to the audience. You believe I actually created an acount for this comment?

    Actually… he is exiting “Stage Left”…. “Stage left” is to the left of center when the performer is facing the audience.

    Being a skeptic means having real evidence instead of merely taking someone’s word for it. Milo is now a skeptic with some first-hand knowledge.

    Thanks … I tried this explanation once with another poster on this site who denied it vehemently.

    After all, I WAS a thespian in my youth … I even know what “Bastard Prompt” means.

    “Bastard Prompt” is a term used to refer to a backstage layout where the Stage Manager’s desk is on the right-hand side of the stage from the actors’ perspective. The more common, traditional layout is having the Stage Manager’s desk on the actors’ left-hand side.

    It’s important because the Stage Manager is the ultimate authority for control during performances – like the Captain or Master of a ship at sea. Actors and support staff such as stagehands become used to receiving direction from the traditional side of the stage, especially at critical times such as when actors forget their lines or during emergencies like fires when the Stage Manager leads all responses.
