Green Theatre

You may have read some headlines recently about London Mayor Ken Livingston calling upon the West End to get more eco-friendly. Now Stage Directions magazine shows us here in the US how our theatres are, um, warming to the idea. From simple things like switching to flourescent bulbs to "natural convection ventilation systems." Subscribers at Philly's Stagecrafters have been asked to volunteer a few extra bucks for a "green subscription."

Then there's this about Stagecrafters: "The theatre plans to buy wind power from its local utility with the money raised from the green subscription." As opposed to just putting on more Tom Stoppard plays.
