Letter: The Season of My Discontent
To the Editor:
This is the first season that I subscribed to the full series of outstanding performances by Northern Stage. In the fall, when the holiday production of Peter Pan was in progress, I received an email saying that tickets for certain performances were being offered at $15 off their original prices. I couldn’t take advantage of this because I had already paid the full price in advance.
Then Northern Stage notified its subscribers that the spring production, A View From the Bridge, had been canceled and replaced with Nunsence. Nunsence is entertaining but not a substitute for those of us who were looking forward to A View From the Bridge.
More recently, an email to all ILEAD members greeted me with an offer of free tickets to attend a performance of Race, compliments of Northern Stage. That’s an offer I would never refuse had I not already purchased tickets for the full price as part of my series.
All of the above is certainly generous, but shouldn’t subscribers be the recipients of perks, not penalties?
