Russ Tutterow

I was saddened to see that Russ Tutterow has died. He was the person in charge at Chicago Dramatists for a long time. Years ago I took 4 play-writing classes there, including a class he gave on the business side of play-writing, which was frank and helpful.

As with the other arts,
there's money at the top,
but few songs make the charts,
and lots of plays go flop.

I think it's to the benefit of art that artists starve, but I wouldn't say that aloud among artists.

Pouring public money into the arts is not an answer. I'm sure of that.
