...UM WHAT  
Emma Rice, on her being hired as artistic director, from this Telegraph article:

She behaved “like a kid in a playbox” by installing lights and radio microphones. “The Globe is the most exciting venue on the planet… I was electrified by the experience and absolutely I turned up the volume.

“Now I can look back and go, of course that was inflammatory. And I don’t think I had explained that to them, so I completely take responsibility for that.”

Did she discuss her modernisation plans with the board when she interviewed for the job? “No, is the honest answer to that, but neither was I asked,” she said.

WHY WOULD THEY ASK, EMMA?!? WHY WOULD THEY ASK???

Why would they think to themselves, "You know, we should find out if candidates for the job plan on changing the main thing that sets our theater apart from all the other theaters in London, without telling us that's a part of their vision? Just in case, I don't know, they don't understand what the venue is about, at all, or something? And don't think it would be a big deal to have to drill holes in the stage?"

ARGH.

How tone-deaf of an artistic director!
