Excerpt from the February 20th, 2018 Interview with Doc Law of the stage quarterly, ABOVE GROUND

D.L.: Porter, how do you see the modern musical theater landscape?

P.S.: Dry, Doc.

D.L. (Chuckling): What will rehydrate Broadway and Off-Broadway, in your opinion?

P.S.: A sense of a Renaissance, over self-interest in the arts.

D.L.: Can you elaborate?

P.S.: When creative projects or people stay in the same position for too long, I believe that they can become less inspirational. Broadway is an institution even more than Hollywood, since there are only forty-one theaters, many of which are occupied unreasonably, for years and years. Having a show on Broadway should be a wonderful happenstance, not a goal unto itself. The goal in the performing arts must always be to forge beauty and meaning out of inspiration. If one has marketplace opportunity and success doing that, then he or she may have the chance to share further inspiration with a wide audience. The longest running show on Broadway, in my opinion, should be no more than two years.

D.L.: Are you formally suggesting musical theater term limits?

P.S.: To whom?

D.L.: To me at this moment.

P.S.: Having status in the arts has become almost everyone's goal, because that's where the money and the opportunities lie.

D.L.: Everyone but you?

P.S.: Being an artist is a privilege, a sacred path, a knighthood for me. Art is the cornerstone of every vital culture. I don't understand where status takes the place of service in that age-old dynamic.

D.L.: Is the American culture no longer vital?

P.S.: Is art the cornerstone of America? No, but that's why we have artists on the planet - to revitalize the culture constantly.
