    You write this as if that would not be a good thing? Honestly, while I support public funding of the arts, I would not use execrable entertainment of the faex populi to tout it. Indeed, I would expect an apology and an order to bring Cameron Mackintosh and Trevor Nunn before the Hague for crimes against humanity. As long as they and the monster Andrew LLoyd Webber walk the earth, no theater district is safe.
