Ask the audience
In her recent interview with this paper, Pat Moylan, the new Arts Council Chair made it clear that much of her focus will be to get bums on seats, and paying bums at that. So how does she do that, exactly? Perhaps it’s time to ask the audience. As bums yourselves, what would get you on a seat in one of Ireland’s theatres? What kind of performing arts productions will you pay to see in these penny pinching times?
