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.
