I abhor this article in Showbusiness Weekly.
If this is STILL the perception of Off-Off Broadway, that's a damn shame. The fact that the gent from OOBR referred to his bread and butter as a string of "vanity productions" is just awful. Even suggesting that in a quick online article you can tell someone "How to Mount a Show So Casting Agents Can See You!" makes me want to chop off my own head in shame. This view of Off-Off Broadway is for those that see Disney as Legitimate Theater and Richard Foreman as that guy who sells Low-Fat Grills.
