I essentially quit theatre because of the BS. There is way too much toxicity from academic theatre to summer stock to regional to the big time? Where does it stop? I’m from a certain age where if you said anything about anything, you were labeled a trouble maker and whitelisted. It’s hot to change-if not now, when?!

I believe in this work and the actions you are demanding. They are long overdue. The collective knowledge of, love for, and experience in theater is outstanding. Right on!

I sign this because, as an actor and theater lover, this is long overdue and SO vitally necessary. Theater is a powerful storytelling medium, we need tell our stories fully and inclusively. It will only increase our power.

I am lucky enough (well lucky is relative, especially in 2020) to work in this industry. WAT has ignored diversity, even with significant public EDI initiatives slowly moving ahead. This tracks through all levels, and most related disciplines. I support #WESEEYOU.

See something that needs to be done and do it. Just because we didn’t create the problem personally doesn’t give us an excuse to turn a blind eye

Theatre needs to decolonize both in front of the curtain and behind it and hold themselves accountable.

Theatre is one of the best ways for us to see and know one another. What a glorious world it will be when everyone's story is told with equal emphasis and resources behind them. How enriched we will be as a nation.

It is time progressive liberals walk the walk. This is OVERDUE.
