ArtsJournal.com does a great job compiling articles on theatre from across the world, so it might seem niggling to question this rewritten headline for an article in the Chicago Tribune entitled "Chicago playwright Tracy Letts wins Pulitzer Prize." ArtsJournal.com rewrote this "Far From Broadway, Letts Is On To the Next Play." Can you imagine? Letts, a Chicago playwright from Tulsa OK, is starting to work on a new play far from Broadway! Who knew such a thing was even possible! Well, maybe he'll become a real playwright and move to NYC, like say David Mamet, another Chicagoan who headed for NYC and then attained the pinnacle of LA.
Could we please stop referencing NYC in references to non-NYC artists?
