Ranty Playwright

Interesting article in the Times about playwrights.  It is sort of amazing that I am managing to get two degrees that will make me zero dollars.  Oh well.  I’ll figure something out.  Anyway, the article makes an interesting point about how difficult it is to balance the philosophy of a theatre company with the need to bring in revenue.  It’s kind of the ultimate problem with theatre in this country.  Everybody wants to see revivals of crappy musicals with famous people in them and nobody wants to see interesting new work.  That’s why I love Boston Playwrights Theatre.  Bravely going where nobody else wants to go.  Producing only new work.  They are kind of my heroes.
