@Laura: I'm with you, but "fair" is, of course, subjective. When I was a working actor, I had the good fortune to get a temporary replacement role in a CAT V commercial production. It seemed like a lot of money, though now I wouldn't think so. But it was infinitely more than the zero I got paid to be an actor in nonprofit productions. @Patrick: Laura shows the flipside to your argument. Since commercial theatre is trying to make a profit for its producers, the talent won't work for free. They actually have to PAY the talent more than minimum wage. Novel concept, no? Yes, of course the regionals pay AEA minimums. But the jobs at regionals are as scarce as (or scarcer than) the commercial jobs.
