Good news all around, but it does make one wonder if Harris talked to CTG before he pulled his play. Seems Harris didn't do his research, which undercuts his activism, or CTG responded to his criticism (and I'd presume that of others) by programming their next season with majority female or non-binary playwrights... though for a non-profit of that size, programming a season can't be done in a week or two, so this was likely in the works already.

Either way, CTG would have done better if they had referenced this subsequent season when announcing their current one, and perhaps explaining more about how they reached these programming decisions. Non-profits aren't used to being transparent, but audiences and practitioners are demanding more accountability and participation in the values of a theater and its programming.
