Mike Daisey Spells It Out
H/t to Isaac at Parabasis. If you have been reading my blog, you must read this: Mike Daisey's "The Empty Spaces, or How Theater Failed America" published in Seattle's newspaper The Stranger. If I haven't convinced you that the current system is broken, Daisey's essay will. Mirror Up to Nature finds it depressing; I find it a trumpet call to a new era in regional theatre, one that isn't beholden to New York, and one that puts the artists in control. The talent of people like Mike's friend should not go to waste.
