Death of a theater actor

The same is done for the camera, according to whether it’s a tight shot, close-up, medium close-up, wide shot, etc. The bigger the playing space, the bigger the actions. In theater, performances happen in real time. Stage actors spend numerous practice hours building up their characters’ identities and peculiarities, and spend much more hours remembering their lines. Regardless of this readiness, stage performers should be quick-witted and able to think on the spot, on the off chance that something unexpected happens. People forget their lines, miss their cues, lose props, set pieces fall apart, lighting cues are missed and sound malfunctions.
