Let me see one.

Sometimes, when I work with students, they’ll tell me they’ve got their little performance ready – that they’ve worked out their tableaux or their scene or whatever it is and that’s when I say, “Show me. Let me see.” If they claim shyness, I compromise and say, “You don’t have to show me the whole thing. Let me see just a part of it. Maybe just the beginning” – or if it’s three parts – “Just show me the first one.”
Seven times out of ten , they will concede that they are not actually ready and will need to actually go back to work to have something to show me.
When I come back, there’s something to see.
