Judging by the Georgetown Palace playbill, the economy is improving.
Fio remembers when the playbill, that little booklet that gives the audience all sorts of info about the play, the actors, and the support staff, also advertises for all and sundry--and two years ago the ads went sparse. Fio thought she sensed a change in the weather last year, but with this years's first performance, she was overblown by the advertisements, and not just the ones for public service entities. A couple of realtors are back, the audiologists are in full bloom (this IS Georgetown), the banks, local businesses of all sorts--even Southwestern University.
Hooray! As goes the Georgetown Palace, so goes the nation!
