When artists attend the theater...

I'm reposting this link from Minnesota Playlist (a great site if you haven't checked it out) with a piece written by my friend and director Kevin T. Houle:

"Poorly Attended" by Kevin T. Houle

I've often had similar thoughts myself. As a writer it's hard for me to sit back and just enjoy a play when the script isn't top notch. I'm constantly pulled out of the play thinking about how the playwright chose to structure the piece, the awkwardness of that last line, and so on. Bad acting pulls me out as well, and so after reading Kevin's piece I'm glad I'm not a director! I've yet to be distracted by the doorknobs. :D

Thank you for posting a link to my article, Jim. Glad to know I'm not alone in getting pulled out of plays.
