With the flap around the Guthrie's season gathering some steam and generating a bit of press, apparently there will be a statement coming from Joe Dowling and the Guthrie next week. Which means it's time for everyone's favorite game, Artistic Director Excuse Bingo!
Place your bets on which of the following well-worn cliches we'll hear:
"We chose the very best plays...regardless of the sex/race of the author."
"Our casting process will be non-traditional and open."
"We are planning to partner with other theatre companies to bring diverse work to our stages."
"We're presenting the kind and quality of work that our audiences want to see and expect from us."
"We will continue, in the future, to present the very best work for the Twin Cities' communities."
Place your bets! (Or feel free to add any other A.D. Excuse Bingo responses in the comments.)
