Narrow minds at shows

Your entertainment writers do a good job informing us all about the Broadway shows in town. I have been a season ticket subscriber for a few years now, and it never ceases to amaze me how people who come to some of these shows have no clue what the show is about. As evidenced again recently for “In the Heights.”

We knew that the show contained rap music, break dancing, themes about life in New York City’s Latino community. Still, people came, sat for half the show and never came back for the second half!

There have been complaints about some of the shows brought to Spokane. I have seen some that I liked better than others, but I never went in completely clueless. Even at “Spamalot” and “Young Frankenstein,” people around us were upset that we were laughing so hard.

I suppose next year people will be mad that “Rock of Ages” isn’t about the church! Please, people, not every show is “The Sound of Music.” If you don’t like the content, give your tickets to someone who wants to go. As for us, we look forward to next year.
