    I find interesting the notion that theatre audiences are disproportionately female. I also wonder the degree to which (if at all) these dynamics are connected to a rise in women in the white collar work force, and their nearly two to one dominance over men in getting bachelor’s degrees.

    To be sure, there is obviously sexism alive and well in theater. But I wonder if women, discouraged by that sexism and more likely to be able to secure and succeed at a better “day job,” are being pushed out.
