PAGE TEN FK1DAY, JUNE 19, 1968 /Folks Want to Get into the Act, Silvers Says By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD (AP) — The legitimate theater, already beset with a variety of ills, faces another trouble — .the loss of the balcony audience. PhU Silvers, star of the Immensely popular "Top Banana," throws some light on this problem. He has been touring across the country In the Broadway hit—"Name a city; I've played it." Although the show Is generally sold out in the orchestra seats at prices ranging from $4,80 to S6. the lower- priced balcony seats often go begging. This situation has alarmed many persons in the theater. Most, of today's balconies are empty, whence will come the theater audiences of tomorrow? Are of Vision to be getting in tho spirit, because* I found him pecking out a story on a typewriter. "I sometimes get the delusion that I'm a writer," he explained. I always tear the stuff up the next day." Lost Voice The comic, who talks urgently about his own problems, said he had adopted a new attitude toward life. LOUK a favorite of other comedians, he used to be alwitys "on," meaning he would continue performing in private life,. This constant tension was partly the cause of a loss of voice during the New York run of "Top Banana." "Now I'm a different person," ne said. "The only time I'm 'on' s when I'm on stage. During the our, I had to retire to my hotel room. I built a wall of loneliness tround myself." He'll end the show here and then start talking about a film version. 'HN*»R etsahrdl shrwdwil hhaa t POWs Comedian Silvers thinks he knows I fi!m ver itn tao shrd cm f nm ha the reason for this phenomenon. JDals are cooking with three pro"I've thought It out very care- ducers, he reported. u fully," he declared, "and I've come to this conclusion: This is the age of vision. "Television Is probably the rea- •on for it. It has gotten people into the habit of seeing things close up. Instead of seeing a fight from the 100th row, they have a ring- tide Sftat on TV. The same Is true | POWs died later o! injuries of other sports, as well as public boost the death toll to 40. events, c o rji e d y and dramatic shows. "So when they go to the theater, they aren't content to sit up in the balcony. They want to see the expressions on the faces of the actors, and they're willing to pay prices to see a good show. top But they won't sit where they can't see, no matter how much money they save. "The age of vision is hitting the movies, too. The big thing now is leeing, so theaters are getting 3D and wide screens." ; Like most hard-working comedi- "ans, Silvers is a serious fellow when he Is not working. He is relaxing at the Garden of Allah, "communing with the ghost of F. Bcott Fitzgerald." That's the fabled hostelry that once housed Fitzgerald, Robert Benchley and other literary greats.
