28a6/1243528040-cross.jpgThe white neon cross hanging from the ceiling of the Memminger Auditorium has been covered up. It’s part of the set design for Don John. While the play is dark, the cross is strung up to the ceiling during Charles Wadsworth’s chamber music series. The cover-up happened some time over the weekend and it happened after I wrote about the pleasure of seeing the trashy neon cross while at the same time listening to something as gorgeous as the St. Lawrence String Quartet performing Ravel’s only work for that instrumentation. Alas, a simple black screen blocks the view of the cross. Even the mirrored disco ball is gone. Too bad for those of us with a taste for extreme contrasts, for both the sublime and the profane. -JS
