Required Reading: Richard Nelson’s Address to ART/NY

Courtesy of Mr. Excitement, we have here:

Richard Nelson’s Address to ART/NY

And I find that it’s very spot on with what I’ve experienced and witnessed.

Great excerpt, here:

“The profession of playwright, the role of the playwright in today’s American theater, I believe, is under serious attack. Some who attack are simply greedy, some ignorant, some can’t understand why theater isn’t TV or film. But perhaps the greatest threat to the playwright in today’s theater comes from not those greedy and ignorant, but rather from those who want ‘to help.’ “

This is required reading for playwrights, directors and especially theatre producers.

Thanks for the scoop, Mark.
