Re: “How Does Your Garden Grow?

I have never been a fan of folk art, much less the "art" of Romano Gabriel. Gabriel was not an artist in the sense that he studied art formally or struggled as artists typically struggle. Furthermore, he didn't associate in any way with creative people, so he didn't get that great cross-fertilization of ideas that serious working artists and musicians get, and great art is never created in a total vacuum. Therefor, I can't get too excited by his work and have a difficult time understanding the impulse behind the Furlong production, which I did see. Now, had Gabriel been around to work with Furlong, that could have been half-interesting. But this is Furlong production assumes a great deal of the man and of the "artist" and fills the story in with a lot of questionable material. Also, the music was rather inferior to say the least, but matched the mediocre theme and production quite well.
