Abstract: The article by Schneider and Chesky in this issue of Medical Problems of Performing Artists presents an interesting look at how social support affects performance anxiety. Performance anxiety is one of the most discussed topics in performing arts medicine, in part because it is a multifaceted phenomenon with medical, psychological, and academic/financial aspects. This has led to considerable controversy about the best way(s) to manage "stage fright," ranging from pharmacologic intervention to various types of psychotherapy to a variety of homespun approaches.
