More Englert Blogging

Nelle's letter made the Press Citizen today. It's short, so I'll just post the whole thing:

Donors can give to theater groups

This letter does not come from any board of any theater. This is just a suggestion from a long time performer, worker, actor, director and benefactor of Iowa City Community The-atre ("Donors dislike theater direction," Jan. 31).

I do not wish to cause the Englert Theatre to close, but if donors are disappointed with the direction the performance space is taking, I have a suggestion for them: Take the money you planned to donate to the Englert so you could see local theater and performance groups in that space, and give it to one of them.

Iowa City Community Theater would be thrilled to receive such a gift, as would Dreamwell Theatre or City Circle Acting Company.

Iowa City Community Theater has two more shows after "Guys and Dolls" -- "Hedda Gabler" and "The Secret Garden." Next season is our 50th anniversary, and the theater group has a great lineup of shows: "Fiddler on the Roof," "On Golden Pond," "The Odd Couple," "The Seven Year Itch" and "My Fair Lady."
