The remainder of the run for IN THE MATTER OF J. ROBERT OPPENHEIMER is sold out and NWCTC is considering a re-mount for the fall, in time for mid-term elections. I'm gratified that the play is stirring political passions, even if it does, inevitably, preach to the converted. Though, that said, I would love to see a political play draw in an audience with more varied opinion. I'm not sure that I care if a political play is 'conservative' or 'liberal,' as long as it's a fulcrum for debate.
Have you seen political theater reach an audience that you would have thought would be unreceptive to it? Do you think there is value in 'preaching to the converted,' which we do most of the time?
