  2. Seems like "South Florida Theatre Review" is becoming more of a tour promoter, and less of a "South Florida" theatre review page...

  3. Sure, half the articles on the widget are about national tours; but the other half are all about local productions.

    And let's not forget that those tours provide a lot of work for a lot of South Florida stagehands and musicians. They may provide almost as many local jobs as the local productions do.
