Reflection by Shepard Sobel
We started The Pearl with a typewriter and carbon paper, 1000 index cards, a reel-to-reel tape recorder, and for dimmers, two six-packs of auto-transformers, the heaviest machinery ever produced by man with the single exception of some German expressionist plays.
I never thought my last act as artistic director would be to write a blog posting.
I do not believe that the good old days are the best of days. I believe the best is yet to come.
But one can’t help but be a little bit wistful, can one?
Jim: I am pleased to present you with a 10-station computer network, digitalized sound system, a legion of Source Four instruments with the circuitry and control system to make them hum.
Let me re-state all of the above.
We started with a wonderful cry of players and the best plays ever written. I am pleased to present you with the very same.
I have loved every minute.
