RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
From what I am hearing on the show. The people that are against this play are clueless about what drama is and what the point is: To broaden, enlighten and present that which might be outside of one's life references.
I further suppose that these parents would also find offense with half the plays that include sexual hijinx and questions by Rodger and Hammerstien, Neil Simon (sweet charity, the goodbye girl, barefoot in the park), Steven Soundheim (west side Story, a funny thing happened on the way to the forum, Gypsy), and most of the works by Shakespeare.
Please, it's time to stop being so provincial and realize that La Grande's teenagers have to learn there is a great big world outside of it's little tiny small-minded section of Oregon.
