I want to note I am promoting these shows because I believe in the art of both Welch and Johnson. These artists’ created strong bodies of work — productions tragically cut short — that deserve as wide an audience possible. Of course they are friends and I want to preserve their memory, but the art itself is worth the attention regardless of the biographical aspects.
