Well, the President of the United States has to keep his character going 24/7 for about four years (eight if he’s got a good character going). The Marx Brothers rarely fell out of character. For me the trick to keep from committing suicide (in character of course) is the word “persona”. The difference for me being that a full-on character (as I might elect for a play) is very far from me, in personality, habits, age, voice.. even perhaps height, weight, or gender. It’s hard to keep going with all that after the curtain falls. With a Persona, you are taking aspects of your own personality and physicality and magnifying some traits and minimizing other traits. So at the core, there is still some “truth” of who you are as a human-being still evident, just shifted around. Even if one persona might be farther afield than another, it is easier to play parts of you for an extended period of time, than something that is totally far from you for a long period. This also brings up practical considerations, like designing costumes and maybe wigs that are “you” as well as your character/persona feel good wearing, so you are comfortable and feel somewhat natural living in them hour after hour or day after day. Some of the old-time greats never let down their guard for a moment, some celebrities today do the same. I guess, if you’re “inventing” a new skin to wear and live in on stage, make sure it fits and is comfortable for extended wear. Magically, Walt [/quote]
