Re: Skip Nicholson on Stratford.  I seem to have left an impression I did not
intend.  But in fact, the "classics" that Skip notes get to be staged at
Stratford at least in part because the musicals have consistently sold out.
They ARE the preferred draw.  Other productions may develop into hits, but
management can count on the musicals -- which incidentally are usually very
well done.  I'm pleased that Skip thinks Ontario is still worth visiting;
perhaps those of us who live here are just old, jaded and spoiled.  Ah for the
good old days of Guthrie and the tent!

Cheers,
Ron

Regarding Paul Nelsen's clarification that plays at the Globe will be performed
by two companies, a "Red" and a "White" -- can I assume that this an allusion
to the houses of Lancaster and York, and the War of the Roses?

It's been 30 years since I took intro to broadcasting, but in the 40's, either
NBC or CBS ran two separate radio networks in the United Staes, one called the
"Red" and the other the "Blue."  The names had no particular meaning, except
for their vaguely patriotic connotations. Perhaps the same applies in the
present instance?
