Last year, voters in all three surrounding counties supported a millage for the Detroit Institute of Arts. Now, you’re talking about selling the DIA’s treasures. Not only is this disastrous for the City’s future, it’s also a kick in the teeth to the hundreds of thousands of people in the region who support the DIA.
On a whim, we decided to go see Edward II last night at the Mix Studio Theatre. I checked out the New Theatre Project, and they’re all about putting on new work, being experimental, breaking the “fourth wall” and giving chances to new actors—all great goals in theory, but I’ve sat through enough bad productions to know that this isn’t typically a recipe for success.
