(VIDEO) EIGHT SHOWS A WEEK
"Eight shows a week -- it's too many shows," Em says.
John agrees. He explains it's a tradition, and it is also hard on the actor.
Though John understands why producers need eight shows to keep a show running, he explains why the schedule for Broadway, with Wednesday and Saturday matinees, is difficult for an actor, and why Off Broadway's schedule, with weekend matineesm can be even more difficult.
John suggests he might do better negotiating for a six show week -- if he's offered a part in an Off-off Broadway production.
That Broadway star Cullum can negotiate better working conditions for himself nowadays if he's in an off-off Broadway production gets the Cullums chuckling.
