United States it is in glowing health That is the testimony of two theater experts who know what they are talking about One is Edwin Lester major domo of the Civic Light Opera of Los Angeles and San Francisco which is cele brating its 25th successful year The other is Warren Caro big gun of the Theater Guild which is bringing more theater than ever1 to the road through its subscrip tion plan

theate says alive on the road said Caro an earnest theater lover on his own and husband of Nanc Kelly Its no problem to send a hit musical on tour But its a real risk for a straight drama like A Far Country If a pro ducer knows he has the cushion of an assured audience for so many performances hes more likely to take a chance What is the current state of the road It is amazingly healthy Caro reported In places like Toronto and Detroit where there are greai new theaters there is a tremen dous surge of interest in theater In other places with old houses like Pittsburgh it is hard to stir
