Re: “Firehouse Theatre Turns Hose on Itself

I love me some Joe Inscoe. He has been a hero of mine for years now; ever since I moved to Richmond to study acting at VCU (though obviously carnegie mellon would have been a better choice. I could have been molded into the prototypical commercialized model, instead of studying innovative methodologies by internationally heralded practitioners, including Fulbright scholars). Mr. Inscoe is the very definition of professionalism, of craft, of talent and the hard work to back it up. He is a shining example to every young actor hoping to carve a path for themselves as working professionals. He is a kind, generous actor on the stage, on the screen, and behind the scenes by Krafty. He is one of many gold standards, or diamonds hidden away in our little haven by the James. There are certainly a number of bad productions and awful performances that could benefit, not from "ringers," but real critical feedback as opposed to plot synopsis and pats on the back. You think people in New York say, "you know what this production needs? a good british actor!" People that truly support the arts, particularly Richmonders, like it homegrown, and buy local. So leave Joe alone, go stand in line for 9 hours in NY and take out a loan to watch ants dance on stage if you want some "real" acting.
