An Interesting Comment
This comment came in today, and I wanted to post it out here on the main page for all to see. A writer identified as "Anonymous" wrote:
Dear Chuck-And here's my response:
I want to thank you for giving a voice to the local theatre community. It is reassuring to see continued support for the performing arts in our area. The tri-state theatre community has more potential then it gets credited, not just in Huntington, but in Ashland, Russell, Greenup, Ironton, Portsmouth, and beyond. People come from all the areas--crossing state boundaries and rivers--to perform in shows at 5th Avenue, First Stage, ACTC Theatre, Huntington Outdoor Theatre, Company of Dreams, Portsmouth Little Theatre, ARTS, Backstage Players, etc. giving testament to the 'without boundaries' community we have in our tri-state area of Ohio, Kentucky, and West Virginia.
Since the title of this blog is Tri-State Theater, I was wondering if you could cover more of the tri-state area, especially in Kentucky and Ohio. I understand you are from the Huntington area and are very proud of the local talent. Equal amounts of raw talent can be found all along the river. Many people, including myself, come from outside of Huntington to support your performances throughout the year. It would be nice to see more audiences from Huntington sending their support to their theater neighbors in Kentucky and Ohio as well.
Thanks again for your support to the performing arts community.
Anon, thanks for your kind comments. I agree that there's some amazing talent out there, and certainly Huntington isn't the only place to go see a great show. Unfortunately, I'm just one guy, and while I try to attend shows all over the Tri-State, I don't always succeed. That's why I welcome anyone out there who has information, photos or a review of a local production to send it to this blog, either as a comment or an email. My address is TheMinskers@aol.com. Thanks!
