American Theatre Runs Article on “Sustainable Theatre”

Mike Lawler, the author of the above article in this month’s issue of American Theatre magazine, asks, “Have our theatre artists carried [a] sense of ecological consideration with them into the green rooms, through the wings and onto the stages — or has it been left at home with the farmer’s-market-procured organic broccoli and the fuel-efficient Corolla?” The article is a shot across the bow that challenges theater professionals of all stripes to undertake immediate and far-reaching change in their institutions.

Lawler runs the excellent blog Ecotheater, and (full disclosure) is writing a piece on the Green Theater Initiative to run in the October issue of Stage Directions.

A definition of the terms “sustainable” and “sustainability”, in broad use among environmentalists, can be found here.
