Another way all this reflects "America" is how building a bigger stage/theatre dovetails with American notions of bigger being better and that growth can/should only be expressed through literal growth.

As has been pointed out by many over the last year, this has worked its way into the everyday thinking of many theatre leaders. Example: I took some classes with Ben Cameron when he was heading up TCG some years ago. We were discussing theatres and the issue of growth when someone wondered aloud if a new theatre was really a necessary expense. They rambled on and asked if that "growth" money should be put into other things: Like more productions, work with larger casts or smarter investments in audience development.

Cameron looked blankly at the questioner and then politely re-asserted the POV that healthy theatres built bigger theatres.
