Workshopped to death

Excellent article in the New York Times (free registration required) about the danger of the growing culture of theatre workshops and rehearsed readings, leading to continual rewrites but no actual perfomances.

According to the playwright and director Mois├ęs Kaufman"We have nurtured a generation of writers who have learned to write for readings," he said, "as opposed to writing for the stage. The result of this is that plays keep getting smaller."
