From the Editor

The Friday, Dec. 1 arts review of the Musical Theater Guild’s production of “Children of Eden,” entitled “‘Children of Eden’ is Sinfully Good,” did not disclose the author’s involvement with MTG. Though the author, Bill Andrews, who is also The Tech’s Campus Life editor, was not involved in the production of “Children of Eden,” he has recently performed in the cast and orchestra of other MTG shows and has become the group’s publicity director since writing the review. The author was not fully aware of The Tech’s policy that prohibits reviewers from covering any performances of groups in which they are involved.

Had editors been aware of his involvement, the review would not have been published. Andrews will not write reviews of theater or band groups on campus, since he is involved in both activities. In the future, arts writers will also complete a form asking them to list their extracurricular involvement and will be told explicitly about the policy.
