Just a quick blurb this morning to get this information out: "Too Much Light Makes the Baby go Blind" is at Woolly Mammoth this week in DC. If anyone is interested in a road trip let me know.
Was watching TV the other night- rare at my house- and saw a commercial for Barksdale. A very nicely produced, beautiful commercial for Barksdale. Is this a new thing or have I just missed it because I do not watch much television? Way to go Bruce and Phil! I adore anything that promotes theater around here, especially when it is so pretty. A very smart idea, marketing wise, to go after the folks who are not already in the theater loop aka a typical television audience- and prime time too!
Hope to see lots of you at State of the Theatre Coffee and Conversation.
And for you geography geeks: I could be wrong but according to my sources Baltimore has a population of 1.4 million and Greater Richmond of 1.2 million (Hanover and Petersburg must be included because of Hanover Tavern and Sycamore Rouge). And anyway Baltimore has 76 area theaters and theater companies compared to Richmond's
22. So even if my population stats are wrong, and Baltimore is twice as big as I think, Baltimore still has more than twice the number of active theaters and companies. Funding is part of it - read upcoming article in STYLE for more information.
