While this article might be "fair", it doesn't accurately profile a night at Relapse, the theatre itself, or it's owner. And while many business owners might not understand pouring your heart and entire life into your dreams, Bob Wood is making it work. He definitely couldn't do it alone though, and it's that support network of actors, performers and stage-hands that makes Relapse an amazing place that will continue to grow. Anyone that is lucky enough to have found this place will gain something positive from it, even if it's just experience. Pretty much everyone that is a regular at Relapse is extremely talented, funny or just fun to be around in general and are willing to do anything to help encourage, motivate and inspire each other. Nobody is blowing hot air up each other's asses; these are real people that will tell you how it is but in an encouraging way... just because you won't really learn otherwise. Anyone at any level of experience will learn something from these folks; I have seen it. And there's a bar, plus the ever-lovely Deckerettes... I hope it keeps it's relaxed atmosphere as it continues it's certain grownth.
