Theatre A similar sort of effect to 'TimeCode' is being played out on stage at the Manhatten Theater Club. In Alan Ayckbourn's "House" and "Garden" the same actors are playing same characters at opposite ends of the theatre an when they exit one stage they have to dash across to the other. Like film, the timing is critical as this article from New York Daily explains:
"Any delays, and the actors already on stage "have to come up with their own business when they realize someone's late for an entrance," says Fitzsimmons, who recalls a couple of instances when an actor in "House" killed time by watering indoor plants with a glass of sherry."
I just love that America has embraced Ayckbourn. More tea, vicar?
