Great River Guys

Photos_-_Dropbox-3Great River Guys is the weekly column by Managing Director Lee Gundersheimer and Artistic Director Doug Scholz-Carlson.

Lee: Welcome to the Great River Guys blog.

Doug: Can you welcome people to a blog?

Lee: I just did. Our readers will just have to imagine we’re talking.

Doug: You mean this blog is written to be heard out loud? Like dialogue in a play?

Lee: That’s the idea.

Doug: Won’t that be confusing? I mean, when we speak out loud, we use language in a very different way than when we write. Look at that last response of mine – the second sentence isn’t even a sentence. “Like a play?” Where’s the verb?

Lee: Well, had you spoken it out loud, it would have been perfectly understandable.

Doug: Granted, but it’s hard to read off the page.

Lee: Yeah, just like a play by Shakespeare.

Doug: I see where you’re going with this. Maybe we should introduce ourselves and then we can continue.

DOUG: With the opening of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead coming this Saturday (be sure to get your tickets and your WOW button for the after party!), we thought it would be cool to have a conversation with someone integral in that production rather than our usual playful banter!
