Facts, opinions, rumors and innuendoes about the theater scene in Spokane, Washington
Definately Melon...with Salmon Hues.
Is it just me or does anyone else find it ironic that today, 9/9/05, Civic Theatre is posting promotional/publicity photos for its fall show on this blog and 2 weeks ago, 8/26/05, Civic Theatre was contacting its suppporters, notifying them that this blog is "completely unprofessional, a conflict of interest and, by reporting standards, unethical" and requesting those supporters to contact the Inlander Editor to "denounce this unethical and hurtful web site" and "to threaten pull ad space" from the Inlander?Or is this just now nonprofit community theatres do business in America today ... at least in Spokane?
This is beginning to feel like work again, having to come in and remove innappropriate comments from the blog. This is a warning: We would like to have a discussion of theater here, not a series of anonymous pot shots at people and/or organizations. And for the record, Civic didn't post these pictures here, we did--because we thought maybe you'd like a sneak peak at their upcoming production.I will turn these internets around--don't think I won't.
Nice work Bobo. I like the blog. Nice way to catch up, read up, rev up, and enjoy the rich theatre that we have in Spokane.
I second what ravenstone said. kudos.
I think this blog is wonderful. I love everything about the Spokane theatre community. (The excitement, friendships, great theatre, and yes, I have to admit it I even follow the petty arguing and politics from across the country) I love this blog because it let's me get caught up on what's going on where my heart is no matter where I am.What Spokane has is amazing. For a city it's size to have 2 professional theatres, a few semi-professional theatres and a number of community theatres is amazing. I am very proud to have come from such an incredible theatre community. What we have to remember is why we are involved with theatre in the first place. It should be a creative outlet not a showcase for one-upsmanship. It should be enjoyable not a political battlefield.So please use this blog to death. Nothing makes better theatre practioners than debate, study, reflection and communication. We as theatre lovers get so bogged down over reviews and criticism when the only way we can overcome our weaknesses as artists is to admit we have them, understand them and eventually grow past them.Keep up the great theatre. I can never wait to see what's on stage when I'm heading home.(I'm a really awful speller and grammatician so please forgive and forget that:)
