some recent posts

The Resident Curmudgeon has left a new comment on your post "Interplayers' 2007-08 season (partial listing)":
I must wonder why our Spokane houses are starting to play copy-cat to the Lake City Playhouse. This season The Civic put on "The Nerd" immediately after it closed at The Playhouse (haven't seen The Civic's production, but they will be hard pressed to top The Playhouse's outstanding production),
and now Interplayers announces they will duplicate two plays The Playhouse announced in February would be in their 2007-2008 season - "The Rainmaker" and "On Golden Pond." (see your blog of Feb 6, 2007).
Seems to me the Spokane Houses are flirting with losing some of their Coeur d'Alene audiences if they keep this up.

I likewise enjoyed the production and the performances very much. As you say, one fo the best ARt has done. The cast was solid and wonderful. I am however surprised at your praise for the writing. You mentioned the symbolism was too obvius in your review of ALL MY SONS, but those presented here are so much more so. Character names like "Felicity" "Flora" and "Humble." Please. And all that business with the father's ashes getting into people's food, and ew, how gross! How many sitcoms have we seen that business in? - Hell, maybe I'm missing the big picture or something, but I'd say this was a fairly stellar production of a play that needs a lot of work.

Why does the curmudgeon assume that the Spokane houses are copying CdA and not the other way around???? Or that rumors of possible shows for the next few seasons don't bounce around the Inland Empire and happen to get picked up by both sides of the border???

Curmudgeon in residence,such a sweeping accusation, swept as they must be from your burgeoning imagination, unless you are privy to some insider information except to the rest of us. Did you ever consider and this is speculation, that Civic may have chosen it's season well ahead of Lake City Playhouse?Either way, why stir up trouble where none exsists.Oh, but that's right controversy is the job of our local curmugeon.Sweep,sweep,sweep!
