Wikipedia

Maybe you've noticed, at one time or another, that Wikipedia is not very well-informed about the performing arts. I remember that the first time that I went to look at an article about Brecht, it was infuriatingly just a stub -- one of the single most influential theatermakers of history, and there was maybe six sentences. His page has gotten much better.

For all of those performing arts moments, concepts, and figures that haven't gotten their due yet, there's a project called Performing Wikipedia which is out there trying to beef up the performing arts on Wikipedia.

Some years back I appointed myself to improve the entries on mime theatre and mime performers, but eventually I got bogged down with just repairing vandalism.
