  1. Any news if Patty Duke will be doing any of the ARt plays?

  2. um - what happened to them being a rep theatre with incoming talent?
    I've see this show that the have cast - but it was called something else at another theatre

  3. What did you just try to say? aRt has to do what the budget allows.

  4. One fine actor can play many roles.I could care less where their from.The quality of the performance is what matters.Bringing actors in is great as long as their worth it.There are many other local actors I would enjoy seeing in ART productions but if they don't audition what can you do.The actors ART is using are very accomplished and well worth going to see many times over.

  5. This seems to me to be a good compilation of actors who have been seen at ART (but not all in the same show) and a few new faces. If the quality of the show is good then there shouldn't be anything to complain about.
