@art525 from Park Slopethat's so weird, i was thinking the same things a few days ago, at first i thought "ohh Gehry", and then I caught myself thinking it and thought, "wait a minute, big deal!"
Boy it seems you can promote anything by sticking Gehry's name on it. First Brooklyn bought a bill of goods with Atlantic Yards because it had Gehry's name attached and now this new theater promotes itself because it was designed b Gehry. What a culture we have become that we are attracted to bright shiny objects. Gehry is so insubstantial but like sheep we follow the buzz.
If Brian thinks 80% Black 20% White is an unusual ratio for a theatre audience, then he's simply been going to the wrong theatres. He should check out Kumble in Brooklyn.
Brian, don't forget, "War Horse" has several actors of color playing large parts that are non-traditional in their casting, including English army officers.
I wonder what your guests think of SMASH on NBC?
