Warren Buffet & Theatre

I was reading through some comments by Warren Buffet [major investment guru; I happen to know quite a lot about investing in another life] and one of the questions he asks managers of companies is

What keeps you up at night?

I think this is a good question to ask a director. What does he worry most about when putting on a production. I also think it’s pretty relevant for writer’s too not only in the work about to be staged but what worries them most in their writing currently.

He also asks, if you could get rid of one competitor with a silver bullet, who would it be and why? I don’t think this is so useful for directors but if they had an answer it would be intriguing….
