It's nice to see The Dallas Observer has maintained it's snarky attitude. If you want polished, professional theater, go to NYC and see CATS or Les Mis again and again and again, until you are sick of them and want to jump off a bridge. Then see them again and again etc. because there is nothing else to see. IF new plays, playwrights and actors are not developed thru small productions at festivals like F.I.T. there will never NEVER be anything new. I only saw half of this year's offerings. While the 4 plays were not ALL superb, 2 of them where. And the other 2 were not so bad that I walked out or fell asleep. Shame, shame on the Dallas Observer for wanting to euthanize F.I.T. for not getting an A+ in all subjects. You don't throw the baby out with the bathwater.
