Red State Theatre

I put in a comment on the red state thread, but I feel like I want to post this as well:

What exactly does speaking to the concerns of red state conservatives mean? Do you suggest the American theatre devote an entire wing of itself to the promotion of hatred gussied up as Bible studies? I'm sorry, but while I've heard this argument from Mannheimer over and over, and while I respect the view, I think theatre is theatre -- the moment you begin tailoring drama for this constituency or that constituency, it is no better than the stage of the Lord Chamberlain or Soviet Russia.
