Although Wilmington has a lively theater scene, the productions most often have a whiff of "community theater" about them.
I think an artistic director is precisely what the Thalian Association needs to sharpen and refine its vision.
I'm happy to hear a "national search" is in progress. Casting and direction tend to be insular here in Wilmington, and the theater community a little too smug in their limited efforts.
Someone highly qualified and brought in from some other area of the country will fit Wilmington's theater bill to a T. A capital T.
An artistic director will bring a welcome breath of fresh air to Wilmington's stale offerings.
