To the Editors of The Crimson:

In response to article on Norman Ayrton, I would like to make a few comments based upon my own experience here with drama.

The actors, actresses, and production staffs that I have had the pleasure to work with have--without exception--demonstrated a commitment to theater so profound as to be almost frightful. Rarely have I encountered an actor who even had to pause to decide whether to make an extra rehearsal or study for an hourly. Regardless of the actual artistic results of the various shows I have been involved with, the one excuse I could never make for them is that they have suffered through lack of commitment or concern. Any faults or triumphs were the result of honest and sincere work.

Mr. Ayrton is more than entitled to his own opinion of the actors he has worked with, but I invite him to observe a rehearsal of The Front Page, and, afterwards, I'd like to discuss the application of the word "professional" with him. Jeff Melvoin '75
