V.P. of Development, Bucket Productions
Dallas Observer theater critic Jimmy Fowler responds: Mr. Rice's complaints about the unsung contributions of a small theater techie in this town are well observed, and by no means his alone. Whether a show costs $30 million or 30 cents, actors and directors should realize that the contributions of these professionals are part of the artistic process, not just loose ends to be tied up by a guy who knows a lot about electricity.
As far as Bucket Productions having spoken to Theater Projects Consultants about the proposed space, the September study that TPC released included a list of all 102 individuals and organizations they consulted to arrive at their findings. Neither Jason Rice's name nor anyone from Bucket Productions is on the list. A TPC spokeswoman confirmed that this list was comprehensive.
