What is happening to our Los Angeles theater (" 'Garden' Cultivates Vision of Hell," by Dan Sullivan, Oct. 11)?
How we were looking forward to the refurbishing of the new James A. Doolittle theater, which is the nicest theater in town. It was so heartbreaking to have walked into the cheapest, most tasteless theater we have seen in years on the opening night of the most tasteless theater production we have seen in years--"The Garden of Earthly Delights."
How could the new owners have misguessed the public's taste so badly? All around us the comments were the same . . . heartbroken and disgusted. What a let-down. Who wants to support the theater and introduce young people to the theater when the ugly theater has nothing more to offer than what we saw?
We lost our Greek Theatre to rock and now our James A. Doolittle Theater to depressing ugliness.
