Re “Britain Saves Its Arts as U.S. Theater Sags” (Critic’s Notebook, July 8):
There’s no question that the American theater industry needs relief. We were among the first to lose our jobs, and will be the last to go back to work. The arts have already suffered $9 billion in losses. There will be more losses to come.
But there will not be an industry to save unless attention is paid to the people who make theater possible: actors, stage managers, stagehands, musicians and more.
