“Booked, busy and blessed”

“Booked and blessed” is the dream of every performer.  The saying (sometimes as “busy, booked & blessed,” “booked, busy & blessed” and other variations) has been printed on many images. The saying appears to have been popularized by dancers, about 2010-2012.

Booked and Blessed
and the impending death of theater

 
“Booked and Blessed.”
 
a phrase which both underlines and undermines the theater performance industry.
 
Because we roll our eyes when someone says it, but are secretly hoping that we can get the chance to say it, too.
 
“What are you doing?”
 
“What are you in now?”
 
“What can I come see you in?”
 
If you don’t have answers to those questions, (I’m sorry to say) you are not booked and blessed.
