The Lieutenant is Dismissed

The Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles announced that it will be "postponing" their production of Martin McDonagh's The Lieutenant of Inishmore.

The interesting part of the los Angeles time article is the Taper's explanation that they had already taken one large cast show (Uncle Vanya) and replaced it with a the Mamet two-hander Oleanna.

This gels with the TCG Fiscal Snapshots released earlier this week.

Here is another key statement from the article:

In planning his 2010-11 season, Ritchie admitted he faces new challenges. “Finances are playing a bigger role than ever -- I have to pay more attention to that as I plan my season,” he said. "It’s more complicated than it’s been in the past. In fact, I don’t think it’s ever really been an issue before.”

One does wonder, of course, if people like Alfred Molina and Bill Pullman are working for union scale.
