Giving Thanks

So it is Turkey Day weekend, and besides being replete with roasted bird, football, and sales, it is also the closing of "Heroes," which I hope you all saw, because it was gently wonderful. I thought it was also perhaps time to give some thanks--as you do! So here goes: Thanks to all who have supported Remy Bumppo along the way; Thanks to all who have subscribed this year and put faith in us--it is greatly appreciated; Thanks to the company's staff, older and newer, who are overworked and underpaid, and who are helping the company weather the economic strictures of our times; Thanks to the Artistic Associates who I now count as my close friends; Thanks to the cast, crew, and designers of "Heroes"--lovely work; and Thanks for supporting Live Theatre, a vital part of our culture and the means to examine ourselves more closely, to laugh at our faults and excesses, to understand and appreciate our differences, and to air and empathize with our shared traumas and difficulties. Here's to our growth together and to taking nothing for granted!
