NOT PAYING PROPOSITION:
AA Community Lacks Sufficient Interest in DAC
By ALLAN STILLWAGON
David Metcalf is an artist, per-
haps too much an artist for Ann
The veteran Dramatic Arts Cen-
ter actor has acquired strict stan-
dards during his theatrical career
- standards which are hard to
meet in a community with the
percentage of "experimental the,
ater" supporters boasted here.
There is no suggestion of sharp
criticism in Metcalf's appraisal of
the local theater scene. "For towns
of comparable size that I've seen,
the situtaion here is good," he
"The local group (Ann Arbor1
Civic Theater) is well supported,!
and the Spring season at Lydia
Mendelssohn draws large crowds.
Not Enough Interest
"But, the other half of the
Metcalf-Audrey Wardteam re-
reports there isn't enough interest
to make the DAC a paying propo-
"I'm just a hired hand," he
qualified, "but I don't think there
will be a theater for classical and
experimental theater in Ann Arbor
next year unless a great many
more people from the University
and the community really want
Metcalf defines "a great many
more" as simply "more than the
approximately 2000 who have seen
each of this year's productions."

"It is harder to entertain, and
anything provocative, requiring
new thought, has to be skillfully
sugar-coated to be accepted.
"Although there is unparalleled
material wealth, there is also inner
anxiety," he said. "The change
that I've seen, starting in the
twenties is worth illustrating."
In the twenties, America was
bursting its intellectual seams,
Metcalf explained. "Although a
lot was mad and gay and worth-
less, there were still exciting per-
suits in every direction.
"And in the thirties, at the
depth of the depression, inquiry
was still alive, it had just been
more controlled, channeled.
"But in 1957," he declared, "we
are as tight as drums. There is
little questioning, less searching."
Audiences want to hear that 'God's
in his heaven, all's right with the
Why? "Perhaps because they're
afraid that everything isn't all
right, but thgy feel better hearing
that it is."
As a result, the producers and
directors whose aim it is to pro-
voke and explore are "always
tremendously in danger." The
DAC, for examgple, "continues only
because a few wealthy people are
interested, and make up the finan-
cial deficit each year. If they got
tired ... well."
It doesn't seem likely that the
DAC "angels" will tire, however.
Certainly not before the next pro-
duction leaves the Masonic Temple
March 1, Euripides' "Mediea"
will open as the last presentation
of the 1957 season.
'Great and Thrilling'
Metcalf beams in anticipation
and assures that "this will be our
finest piece of work . . in the
years that I have been here. It is
great and thrilling theater."
The adjective thrilling is equally
applicable to his feeling for his
art. He calls it "vague and termed
in a cliche." But sincerity and
attendant depth is easy to recog-
nize when David Metcalf speaks
of "serving and propelling what
is good and true and beautiful ...
of being more able to create that
sheer entertainment which has
