Mud, moonlight and magnolias

Dear Editor:On behalf of all of us at Theatre Aspen, I would like to thank our patrons, the Aspen Volunteer Fire Department, and our amazing staff for making it possible to open “Moonlight and Magnolias” last Thursday.In spite of the rain, the flood, and that much of the audience had to wade to the theater, the house was full, the play was good and it turned into a splendid evening. Perhaps “The Tempest” would have been a better choice …Again, our thanks.David McClendonArtistic directorTheatre Aspen
