  • While Telluride is nice, and the people are lovely, the way it is run leaves something to be desired. Actors were told that, in exchange for negligible compensation, that they would be lodged and given "gourmet meals." They do receive some meals, sure, but not very many--and $150.00 doesn't go terribly far in a wealthy town like Telluride, where everything is as expensive as New York City (if not more). Essentially, you lose money by going there. It may sound as if you're getting a working vacation by going there, but it isn't until you arrive that you realize that you get very little in the way of vacationing. There was no itinerary given in advance, so it's quite a surprise, upon arrival, to find out that everyone is overscheduled and expected to be at every event, so that there is very little downtime...if you are doing any side work to supplement your income, or even if you have to put yourself on tape for an audition, don't expect to have any time in which to do it. Finally, transportation from housing to rehearsal and back, while available if you ask for it, isn't readily offered...and housing for most is all the way on the other side of a mountain. There's a gondola, but the walk to housing from there is a very unsafe 1/2 mile walk (there are bears lurking around at night). Company management needs to pay more attention to the actual, not imagined, needs of theatre artists who are essentially giving their time at a loss.
