Backstage Ghosts


The Backstage is a magical place. Behind the stage, everything is quiet, the singers wait for their grand entrance. The hearts pound and the minds flicker unsteadily through the lines to be spoken and the words to be sung. One last peek at the audience and the stage,. Hush, the audience awaits, the entrance nears ...


... and away.

Many artists say, that on stage they are most free. It is a Freedom than no other, it is not private but exposed, exposed to all the world.
The stage is a public place, and once we have entered the limelight, there is no turning back. All Freedom comes at a cost.
