I don't know what happened.
Over the past few weeks I have assistant stage managed a musical at my local theater. It's been an eye opening experience, to say the least. I realized a lot about the theater (I'll write it all down soon. I need more time to sort it all out.). But today was the straw that began to break the camels back. I've had trouble with two of the guys (everyone else in the cast is amazing, but these two). I was trying to seat a guy that came in late, but whose seat had been given away. Well there was a deaf near his original that was free, so by the theaters rules, he should've been able to sit there. I just wanted to check with the woman in charge first. One of these guys decided to tell me that it was ok for the patron to sit. Fine, thank you. But when I said that I was waiting just a moment to speak to the director to confirm. That should've been the end of it. He could have said, "ok, I just wanted to make sure you knew." That would be a perfect response. He decided not to do that and instead to argue with me. I stood my ground and he ended up mad that I did wait. I don't know why. Later we couldn't find a prop, so I went to ask him (it was his prop). He told me that it was where it was supposed to be. I said that I hadn't seen it, but I'd check again. I did. It wasn't there. I did find it on the other side of the shelf. Not in its place. I went to put it on stage. As I was setting it, I told him that it wasn't where it was marked to be, but that I had found it and everything was ok (aka crisis averted). He snidely told me that he had to run off stage for a quick change. I don't remember what I said, but then I turned around to head off stage, so that I could keep doing my job, and he decided to call after me (very irritably) that we had been fighting all evening (no kidding). I turned around in a quick burst of anger and told him that that wasn't entirely my fault. I don't mean to paint myself as a victim or an innocent, I just honestly don't know what I've done wrong.
