Tell it to the Marines

January 10, 2008
Today’s New York Times features an enlightening story about Mishawaka-native Adam Driver, a former University of Indianapolis student who organized an evening theater performance for the Marines at Camp Pendleton.

Driver, an honorably discharged Marine himself, had the notion that Marines might actually enjoy monologues by such writers as Lanford Wilson, Jane Martin and John Patrick Shanley.

Read the results for yourself.

Any military folks in the readership care to comment on the story? Have false assumptions been made about your cultural interests? Are the arts, in generally, truly snobby about such things?

And, for the rest of you, how far should arts groups reach out to appeal to non-traditional audiences?

Your thoughts?
