This article is about, a Broadway producer choosing a well known actress (Abigail Breslin) to play Helen Keller in The Miracle Worker, instead of an actual death/blind actress. It’s not that there aren’t any in the acting world, they in fact have their own community among other actors. It’s the fact that now a days to pull in a great enough audience you need some star power to pull in some ticket sells.
That tells of how our spending habits/ patterns are in today’s society, we don’t want to feel like we’re wasting our money and truthfully a blind/death actress wouldn’t be a guarantee of a good performance, even though they would be able to produce a completely realistic performance.
I completely agree on how people these days care about, more than anything, to become more and more popular. Another example I would like to use are the “love shows” on VH1. These shows say they are real and about finding love but it seems like every contestant that shows up is trashy and only looking to win so that they can become more popular. They don’t care how they look in the end but as long as they get there face on TV then they are fine with whatever the show puts them through. Unfortunately it seems like it is only getting worse and worse.
