I have sent them these three questions:

A QUESTION FOR
Esther Kaplan, The Mayor's Special Assistant for Cultural Affairs for the City of Boston

If I could find a trained professional p/r person willing to promote Boston as "Theatre City U.S.A." and to consult for free on increased publicity with any and all the 84 theatres in the city, would you or the Mayor be able to find enough money to pay her to do it Full Time?
I have a name ready if the answer is Yes.

A QUESTION FOR ED SIEGEL:

Can you tell us why the Boston premiere of a new play by Tennnessee Williams was covered only on Page SEVEN of the Living Section of the GLOBE, Below The Fold?
Why wasn't it you, the GLOBE's Theatre Critic, who wrote the review?

ANOTHER QUESTION FOR ELLEN KAPLAN:

Could the Mayor or the Mayor's Cultural Affairs Office lobby to get the Fire Laws and Fire Inspections either relaxed or Repealed on any new theatres seating 100 or less?
It seems to me that this might Let A Thousand Theatres Bloom, and foster an "off-Off-Broadway" movement that could rival Seattle's Chicago's or New York's.
Right now too many young talented people are cramming themselves into too few spaces, and no one gets a chance to do a run of more than two or three weeks.
