A blog by a playwright who wrote a play about a famous actress coming out of a TV, with a few thoughts on diversity, social justice, and indie theatre.
I can speak to Seattle, my home town, and what he writes about is totally true. It's a super liberal, left wing city.When I moved to New York I realized it's easier to be liberal in a city like Seattle. Everybody is white* and has the same amount of money and education, so your alleged "open mindedness" is never, ever challenged.*This isn't technically true. There are a lot of wealthy Japanese folks. There are also a lot of homeless Native Americans. I know there are a couple of black neighborhoods, too, I just never saw them.
Everybody is white* and has the same amount of money and education, so your alleged "open mindedness" is never, ever challenged.That sounds almost like the Stepford Wives. I'd be seriously creeped out by that.
