New seats will 'awaken' Culbreth

Regarding Lisa Provence's November 8th article "It's a wrap: Scenes from the 25th Virginia Film Fest," the very first thing she mentions, under the heading of "Things we liked," was "No screenings were held at Culbreth, the most uncomfortable theater in Charlottesville...."

Had Ms. Provence done a bit more research, she would have discovered the reason Culbreth was not used: it was closed for renovations. The highlight of those renovations?  New seats.

The U.Va. Department of Drama invites Ms. Provence, and the entire community, to try our new seats during our upcoming production of the rock musical Spring Awakening November 29-December 1 and December 5-8.
