99-seat theater debate: It's time to figure out a collective solution

Facebook and Twitter have been exploding with commentary on changes that are being considered by Actors' Equity concerning the 99-seat Theater Plan. The "Pro-99" contingent, the camp opposed to Equity's proposal -- has had the decided advantage in the forum of public opinion. But something is getting lost in the outcry -- the need for the theater community to collectively figure out a path that can move us all forward.

Since social media is where much of the debate is taking place, I decided to offer my thoughts to the Twitter universe in a series of tweets. Please join me on Twitter (@charlesmcnulty) to continue the conversation.
