little space for theater, but good news for the Met

George Green (the promotions and circulation guy for The Inlander) was in talks with Michael Smith at the Met about possibly scheduling some slots for a new community theater set of productions (perhaps All My Sons, Of Mice and Men, K2) sometime.
And Smith did not have two consecutive weekends available ... for the next two years!
Green felt strongly that a sporadic schedule (a Wednesday night here, a Saturday matinee there) would not attract ticket sales.
So ... not-so-good news for local theater groups (along the lines of the [defunct? dormant?] Spokane Theatrical Group) trying to rent a performance space. (Well, I guess CenterStage is back in the mix, perhaps.)
But good news for the Met. All that worrying about fallout from the Met Mortgage implosion and its effects on the Met, even with its new owner ... not to worry.
Why, we've got culture by the bucket-loads here in Spokane.
