LETTERS

Arts funding stimulates economy and growth


Letters to the Editor

Van French
Once again, the question arises of why we should, as a people, spend our government, our so-called public, money supporting the arts.

Chaperone it


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

The Drowsy Chaperone is hardly a drowsy production. The Tony Award-winning musical comedy is a lighthearted, family-friendly show that recalls the best of the Golden Age of musicals. See University Theatre’s rendition 8 p.m. Thursday-Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday in the Rupel J. Jones Theatre, 563 Elm St. on the University of Oklahoma campus in Norman. Tickets are $15-$30. Call 325-4101 or visit ou.edu/finearts.

Thursday–Sunday

New Ado

City Rep places Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing in frontier Oklahoma.


Performing Arts

Larry Laneer
Oklahoma City Repertory Theatre’s Much Ado About Nothing, now at the Freede Little Theatre, is one of the most neatly acted and clearly presented productions of a Shakespeare play seen around here in a long time. It’s also a comedy that is practically devoid of humor.

Commentary

Jonathan Fowler
Over the last two years, as I’ve learned more about our state arts council, this question has become especially painful to hear repeatedly.

UPDATE: Arts consolidation bill approved in committee

Future of the groups is still uncertain.


News

Jennifer Chancellor and Tim Farley

UPDATE: At a Thursday committee hearing, House Bill 3028 passed with a vote of 6-5, meaning that a proposal to consolidate the Oklahoma Arts Council and Oklahoma History Center with the Tourism, History and Cultural Department may go up for a full vote in the House at any time.

Voting was closer than expected and broke party lines.
