Congrats to Day 5's winner... May 5, 2010

...3CountyLaugh!

Here's what he had to say about the distribution of film online:

I completely agree with Gina, but if my ONLY chance of seeing companies from around the globe is on-line, I’ll take it. If I’m hemming & hawing about $40 tickets to something I prefer a little on-line taste to know if it’s worth it to step deeper and spend the money.

To Matthew’s point about the MET’s HD. A friend of mine discovered he loved opera this way. Never would have spent the cash to see opera of any sort without this.

Congrats to Day 3's winner... May 3, 2010

...ilvs!

Here's what she had to say about the relationship between installations  that use performers  and live theater:

is not art but stationary objects, materials, 2D, 3D, imbued with the artists intent, vision, and overall energy anyways? why not just cut out the middle person, the messenger? why drink from the plastic bottle when the pond is right there within reach.
ok, i dont recommend drinking from ponds, but you get the point.
