And if you believe that, I've got a bridge I can sell you

Anyone who tells you theatre is a dying art form is trying to sell you something.

I was going to write a more detailed post on this point, but really that one statement pretty much says it all. I’d rather not add to the all the hot air swirling around the blogosphere about the “problems” with American Theatre. Go here if you want an entryway into the melee.

Just remember, when you see someone screaming that the house is on fire, look closer and you’ll see them selling buckets of water.

In 1789, the governor of Australia granted land and some animals to James Ruse in an experiment to see how long it would take him to support himself. Within 15 months he had become self sufficient. The area is still known as Experiment Farm. This is my Experiment Farm to see how long it will take me to support myself by writing.
