One Note on “Cities for Actors”

    Hi Sam, I saw this a few days ago and absolutely loved it. I’m not sure the datiels of this particular performance, how they organized it and everything, but I think it’s part of the build-up to the programs they will have for choosing a Maria for the Sound of Music production taking place there in the near future. The choosing of that person to play Maria is set up sort of like Dancing with the Stars or American Idol, where they compete and go through the judging and elimination process, until they’ve found the nation’s perfect Maria! The Canadians did it last year for their Toronto production of the Sound of Music, and I got totally hooked and watched the whole process, which took a couple of months.But I also think this performance is related to a new genre of the public arts, because I’ve seen some other kinds of performing (and temporary) arts that were done in big train stations. It’s so cool! I would LOVE to see a performance like that in person!
