Because there are things in the works in the New York Theatre scene, I wanted to ask this open question:
If you had to define something called "Indie Theatre" who would you do so?
Let's put aside questions of "Is there such a thing" because that's an endless and circular debate. Let's just say there was going to be a new label, and it was called "Indie" for theatre. What would would you say defines "Indie" in the world of theatre?
Think it over. My comments is your playground. Oh, and I'm sure this will be used, by all evidence, here in NYC.
