Skewing old

Arts audiences are graying -- they've always been gray. This, according to an L.A. Times article.
Average age of classical music audiences in 1982: 40. Now: 49. And so on in all the arts. But Diane Haithman makes the sensible point that 20-somethings are out clubbing and 30-somethings have kids and careers. Even so, it's clear that kids have to get bitten with the theater bug early (in their teens) if it's going to pay off decades later (in their 40s and 50s and 60s) with theater attendance.
