An Open Letter from Michael Dove, Artistic Director of Forum Theatre
Many of you attended a performance of How Theater Failed America at Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company this month, and many of you participated in one or more of the provocative post-show panel
discussions. These lively and spirited dialogues covered a lot of ground, from the state of Washington theatre to the health of the arts as a whole.
For many of us, the discussions have continued well after the evening you spent with Mike Daisey. Many of you have voiced your thoughts Forum Theatre’s Blog, or the bar after the show, or in the lobby of Woolly.
We’re hosting an informal, in-person gathering to continue the conversation about the place of theatre in American society, its relevance as an art form in the 21st century, and the ways in which theatre-makers and theatre-goers might innovate the broken(?) system.
Please join us on Monday January 26th at 7 p.m. in the Woolly Mammoth lobby. “Why Theatre?” will be an OpenForum event moderated by Forum Theatre’s Artistic Director Michael Dove and OpenForum curator Patrick Bussink.
