UNEMPLOYED ACTOR (video)
Now that "Scottsboro Boys" is closed, Emily asks John Cullum how it feels to be unemployed.
John jokes about the reality that all actors, understand. The fact is, all acting jobs are "temporary." He describes his discussion with actor, George C. Scott, when they were working at the Circle in the Square, in "Boys in Autumn." Even though Scott was employed in films and theater, more than most actors, he also felt what John feels as a show closes -- that he will never work again.
Emily knows John will miss the "boys" -- they were like a family.
