I am one of the least political people you will ever meet.  Politics do not interest me in any way, shape, or form, and discussing them just makes people angry.  Hence why I banned political discussion from the circuit while I’m at work.  But I digress.

I found this article on my facebook news feed today, and felt it was only right to post about it here after my rant last week.  Even our President acknowledges that “[Broadway is] one of the few genres of music that can inspire the same passion in an eight-year-old that it can in an 80-year-old — and make them both want to get up and dance.  It transcends musical tastes from opera and classical to rock and hip-hop.”

I hope those blasted producers who think cutting parts of the orchestra to save on costs is a good idea saw or see this article.  Whether or not you like him as a President is irrelevant in this matter.  President Obama knows what Broadway means for our culture as a country.  Why can’t the powers behind the live theaters see it, too?
