post of note from Grote


"Of course, part of the paradox here is that critics
lament the lack of originality among playwrights, but
producers, ever risk-averse, push playwrights to
follow the "rules" more closely, making otherwise
original writers into something more familiar - that,
or they pick up a writer anyway because s/he is "hot,"
and and then screw up somewhere along the line - they
don't prepare their audiences enough, or the fire the
good, smart original casts and replace them with
slumming stars who can't handle the material, then
it's a self-fulfilling flop so they go with something
more traditional, and the cycle continues."
