hope and protest

How would an Obama administration affect the arts? There would be more protest.

The New Yorker's drama critic, John Lahr, says,

Historically, in times when there is change or hope, there is much more protest and wideranging opinion and activity in Broadway's experimental theatres. People feel that someone will listen. What we've had for the past eight years is a kind of torpor and resignation, and that's made theatre lose a lot of heat. I think there will be a lot more political, polemical stuff.
