Re: “Most Incestuous Theater Ensemble

P.S. Sorry! My bad! I misspelled Da Vinci twice in my comment! This editorial stuff isn't easy, is it? Perhaps the author of the award meant to title it "Most Infectious Theatre Ensemble," rather than Most Incestuous! I could easily see that happening. At least that would be something we'd prefer to catch!

Re: “Most Incestuous Theater Ensemble

Thank you Tucson Weekly for all you seek to do for the Tucson community. As a patron of the arts and education I agree that the fine work of The de Vinci Players at Studio Connections is noteworthy and deserves the highest of praise, recognition and support. Yet, I am saddened that you have chosen to apply a title (Most Incestuous) to your award category that reflects not only bad judgement on the Weekly's part, but could potentially do harm to the many caring people that frequent and support the Studio and its mission.

The members of the de Vince Players & Studio Connections have labored long and carefully to foster an atmosphere that intentionally seeks to care for and nurture the talent of professional and amateur, young and older alike. In fact, that's one of the wonderful things about the Studio, its ability to create a really dynamic, exciting community that well reflects the rich diversity of our larger Tucson area and of the Arts.

So, thanks TW for also providing space for community review and suggestions. Now please, act upon it! Do consider your own mission and the reason you obviously gave this award- that Tucson Weekly also cares about such treasures and works hard to create the best Tucson possible. That's what's so troubling about this misnomered award title that you've applied to a body the Weekly is lifting up - you have not reflected well on the time-honored mission and work of your own organization and have done the Studio, Tucson, and yourselves a disservice! Please consider changing both the name of the award and perhaps your editorial process. Then keep doing the quality work we've grown to expect and depend upon from the Tucson Weekly.
