Mi accingo a presentare la mia terza Stagione e guardando indietro nel tempo , provo un certo disagio, pensando ai miei illustri predecessori come Maurizio Costanzo che ne fece tre, per poi passare la mano al gruppo olandese della Stage Entertainment che resistette per due stagioni, per poi chiudere i battenti ; senza dimenticare il mitico Gigi Proietti che ne fece 3+3, ma questo non conta, perche poi, fu fermato dall'antidoping. Ci scherziamo sopra, ma basta questa riflessione, per capire che , anche, i miei illustri predecessori si sono scontrati con la dura realta del FARE TEATRO da PRIVATI in assenza di sostegno, e che potrei essere vicino alla fine del mio turno di direzione . Nel frattempo, in modo scaramantico tengo un chiodo torto nel cassetto. (more...)
