Great 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.
