On-stage nudity may cost theater its share of Virginia tobacco money

This story ("Barter Theatre director: The play's not the thing," 5/19/04) says that Richard Rose, the director of the Barter Theatre, was dismayed to learn that Virginia public officials who control the tobacco money for public projects don't regard on-stage nudity as a plus.

The Barter wants the tobacco money in support of its plan to pave over the Barter Green, a project I view as a greater menace to society than on-stage nudity.
