Letter to the Editor: Time to retire the Follies

We went to the Follies on Saturday. It was the most poorly produced, badly written, Hispanic-insensitive, hackneyed show I have ever seen. Even the food was pathetic.

The program was beyond tasteless. If the real and#8220;localsand#8221; of Truckee would have seen the ads, I think they would not patronize the shops and services sponsoring them. The town of Truckeeand#8217;s offering was particularly egregious.

When we first moved to Truckee, the Follies was a fresh, well-written, professionally produced, somewhat-risque, irreverent look at Truckee and its institutions.

That has long gone by the wayside. It is time for this crude imitation to do the same.
