He’s leav­ing Fresno to see the­ater

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - Opinion -

With the new an­nounce­ment of the 201920 Broad­way in Fresno comes a ma­jor let­down. Again Fresno arts take a beat­ing as we get four shows, rushed into the early-to-mid part of 2020, still per­plexed where the 2019 dates are, and noth­ing new and note­wor­thy.

Fresno has the­ater lovers, we sold out two weeks of “Lion King” and “Wicked,” but then Broad­way Across Amer­ica's top billing for the up­com­ing sea­son is the much an­tic­i­pated "Wait­ress," which runs for one night in the mid­dle of grad­u­a­tion sea­son. Ei­ther SMG or B.A.A. needs to wake up — we are a large city, we sup­port the arts. If you want peo­ple to spend money in Fresno and in down­town es­pe­cially, give us a rea­son to, be­cause this up­com­ing year, my sea­son ticket money will be spent out of town see­ing bet­ter shows.
