For many reasons I don’t think this would fly here. Primarily the strictures in the Privacy Act would work against it. But I have to say that I would love to be in the room when someone pitched the idea to get all the theatres to put all their patrons/donors/subscribers into a communal pot.

And the continuing story of: Should whites direct black plays, and vice versa?
If you have read my previous posts on this then you know where I stand. Some interesting points about the two way flow of directors though.

I don't exactly know what it means but there is a play in there somewhere.
