How many actors, in all phases of the theatre industry, feel that working in the theatre is "awful?" Cite statistics and their source. And for how long, historically, has what percentage of theatre actors found the business "awful?"
I don't presume to have an answer (although others apparently do, without divulging numbers or sources.) But if I were to hazard a guess (as others seem to be doing), I'd estimate maybe a little bunch of loudmouth whiners with 1/3 page resumés. Just a wild guess.
