Anyway, I'm sifting through my mail -- which generally consists of "you're doing this right" mail, and, "you're doing this wrong, asshole" mail with a few season announcements, show announcements, and gym postcards announcing the end of summer is in sight (really?), and shouldn't I lose the twenty pounds I've been meaning to lose? -- when a brochure catches my eye: the announcement for Playwrights Horizons 2009-10 season.
When you look at the cover, you see what you always see: buzz words like, "new," "voices," "ideas," etc. But it's what you NEVER see that took my breath away: the whole front cover -- indeed, the whole brochure -- is dedicated to writers. Wherein usually we'd be looking at a cover of Broadway stars to attract attention, Plawyrights Horizons FUCKIN' ROCKS the world with pictures of all the writers being produced in the season: Melissa James Gibson, Nathan Tysen, Chris Miller, Mariana Elder, Bruce Norris, Daniel Goldfarb, Annie Baker, Kia Corthron
