And that underscores the wrongness of allowing the alteration to persist to the point that it became embedded as they say it did. Changes get tried in rehearsals all the time, but when you contemplate a change that is pivotal (and that clearly informs how a show is rehearsed), you raise it before it gets embedded. I think the word that sticks in my craw the worst, though, is unwittingly. The change was not unintentional; calling it unwitting is shirking responsibility. As someone else said, I expect more of the Shaw Festival.
