Save the arts

If a presentation was a theater piece it would involve a dozen different professions, such as: playwright, editor, impresario, director, dramatic advisor, set designer, video designer, props master, stage manager, technician, prompter, and actor. Every business person knows it would take more than a week to simply get all these people together — given the playwright’s job is already done and the script is already written. Of course it is insane to start a new piece in the morning when the premiere is tonight. Nobody would do that, right? Wrong! In business life that happens all the time. We think these geniuses are wasted. They should join the theater — in times of shrinking budgets they might be able to save the arts.
