I’ve read 2 things so far this morning, a blog posting on NPR asking if opera is only for rich white people (it’s not, and I’ve never worked at an opera company that didn’t know that and wasn’t working like hell to reach a more diverse audience,) and this article in the NYT about a performance of the Lion King modified for children with autism.
I think the juxtaposition says it all. but I was thinking about Wheelock Family Theatre’s slogan ‘Live Theater Changes Lives’ all through reading that second article.
It does. and how great is that?
