  1. I welcome Dean Mickey to BU and really hope that she will start planning a more accessible mix of shows. SOT does some great work and I’ve enjoyed the productions I’ve seen, but I wish they’d sprinkle in a few more known titles/crowd-pleasers that will draw in the community and then try to get them to come back to see the other works. I liken this to the BUSO who does a wide range of works, but they will do pieces that everyone knows like Beethoven’s 9th or Carmina Burana at Symphony Hall. It’s really something special when we can draw in a larger crowd to show the great talents of our students.
    I also hope there are plans to do a SOT show in a larger proscenium house. There was mention of that with BU sold the Huntington, but unless I’m mistaken, other than a few operas at the Majestic, the theatre program hasn’t done shows at the Majestic or any larger venue. Like the opera at the Majestic and the symphony at Symphony Hall, I hope the theatre program will get to perform at a larger venue as well.
