The Louisville repertory theater, now in its 53rd season, has an $11.25 million budget, a $12 million endowment, and 196 employees, the CJ says. It presents more than 350 performances annually, and is known especially for its Humana Festival of New American Plays each spring.
Moore replaces Jennifer Bielstein, who left in March after 10 years to be managing director of the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis.
In its announcement, Actors didn’t say what Moore would be paid. Bielstein was paid about $207,000, including benefits, for the fiscal year ended May 2014, according to its most recent IRS tax return on GuideStar.
With White House aspirant Donald Trump and more than 70,000 other visitors roaming Louisville next week for the annual NRA meeting, Boulevard thought yesterday’s installment of our favorite Courier-Journal feature couldn’t be more timely. We’re talking about advice column Annie’s Mailbox, which asked and answered the following:
What is the polite thing to do with a guest who carries a gun? I do not like guns in my house, but I have a friend who adamantly refuses to leave his gun at home when he comes here. Do people who carry a concealed weapon have an obligation to notify the host before entering their residence?
Yes. More importantly, it’s your house. You get to set the rules, and if you don’t want guns, say so. You can’t force him to be honest about having a concealed weapon, but you certainly can inform him of your preferences.
For the second consecutive day, Boulevard’s foreign policy team is struck by the very British slant the Fleet Street tabloids bring to stories about one of the world’s most eligible single women. Lawrence, 25, is in London promoting the new “X Men: Apocalypse” for its May 18 release.
It seems to have something to do with this Lawrence quote: “We are in London. There are still STDs in London. There is still some good sausage.”
Sausage we get. But STDs? Could that be “singles to date”? A typo for “studs”? Boulevard has searched the Internet, wondering if that’s British slang for something much more pleasant. All we can find is this icky quiz from McSweeny’s, and Urban Dictionary’s list — a favorite of which is “Snooki Transmitted Dumbness.”
The Mirror gets only one star, for leaving us distressingly confused. (And speaking of bad reviews . . . )
That’s Ben & Jerry’s co-founder Jerry Greenfield, who’ll give away free ice cream while campaigning for White House hopeful Bernie Sanders today at 3:30 p.m. at Fourth Street and Muhammad Ali Boulevard, according to WDRB.
