From the Editor: On Stage: On Stands and Online
The Spring Arts & Dining Issue is here and I am reminded yet again of how fortunate we are to live in such a creative hotbed. Repeatedly and deservedly, we win in the rankings for arts and culture in a metropolitan area; we have such talented people as well as the patrons to support them. Symbiosis is beautiful. And, being a community that tends to value such aspects of life, Lavender makes it a priority to cover the arts for our readers.
Not only will you find fairly far-reaching coverage of productions that come to our metropolitan area in the print edition of Lavender on a biweekly basis, but we also add more to our online coverage between issues. Coming out every two weeks means that we can be fairly nimble in previewing what’s about to come to our stages, but not necessarily review them when they open to the public. So, that’s why we have additional reviews on LavenderMagazine.com. What’s more, we have a whole online-only column called “5Q” in which we ask five quick questions of one of the cast members or costume designer or director or other such crucial members of a production. We learn the background of some of the actors or what to look for in the show as we’re watching it. Those articles are enough to whet the appetite and make us want to see what they’re talking about for ourselves.
So, please consider this your cordial invitation to join us online for more of what’s on stage. See you in the seats…
