TheatreLouisville Editorial:

Up With the Curtain ... Down With the Curtain Speech!

This week, I was privileged to attend the opening night of Kentucky Shakespeare's Twelfth Night at the Kentucky Center. (Kudos to Keith Waits for an excellent and very perceptive review, by the way.) It's a fine production, and it would have been an outstanding event, except for being preceded by the longest, most tedious suite of "curtain" speeches I have heard in recent memory. These mood dampeners seem to be growing longer and more intrusive across the board, and this needs to stop.

Counter to what our major media seem to think, it is Kentuckiana’s independent theatre scene that defines its culture, not the Big Three. Thus, I hope our amazing wealth of independent theatre companies will take the lead in reversing this trend. The Director's Notes need to stay in the printed program, the commercials need to vanish, and the executive blather needs to go back into the annual report. Let's return to that glorious time when the lights go down, a hush falls over the crowd, and the magic begins.
