Death nell tolls early

There's an article from the Reuter's news service that is already starting the hew and cry about the death of theater. As I pointed out below, this usually doesn't start until after the abysmal ratings for the broadcast of the Tonys comes out. But thanks to Ben Brantley's NYTimes piece, subtley entitled, "The Day the Musical Died," the death nell has started tolling already. Oh, well. I guess it's like Groundhog Day: it comes every year and every year, you wonder whether it really means anything...

BTW, I have a copy of Brantley's piece and I can send a copy (via email) to whoever's interested. Have a good weekend!
