Reading the NYTimes post on the subject, however, I was struck by something: There's no replacement show, or talk of a replacement show. Combined with the talk of the "down economy" etc. isn't the buried lede here that the Public can't afford to do their full season this year? Or am I misinterpreting the story? BEcause it seems to me "The Public Can't Afford Its Full Season" is a much bigger story than "The Public Postpones John Guare Play".
