Why is it that an amazing majority of professional theatre related sites are so poorly designed?

Methinks examples of sites your referring to would help prove your point.

Right, and "they don't know better" covers both "they think the site they have looks OK" and "they don't know that they actually CAN afford a decent designer".

Those are definitely two reasons. Unfortunately, I'd place "they don't know any better" at the top of the reasons with "too expensive" far below, though.

Well, or else most don't know better, or don't have the budget to hire anyone other than "this guy we know".

Not a trick question. But thanks just the same. It's not that they don't hire me. Though I certainly wish they would. It's the hiring of those who just aren't good that bugs me most of all. Just the same, a great deal of those who hire these crappy designers, and even more of the readers who visit the finished product, don't seem to care. Aha. This, no doubt, answers my question. I guess it is a trick question with the answer being most just don't care. :(

Hmmm ... because they don't employ you? Is this a trick question?

You know it. You love it. You can't get enough of it. Yes, it's the infamous webcam!

Read all about how I, and hundreds of others, got screwed out of tens of thousands of dollars by Doug Mayo.

Times have changed and so too has the design of this site. Journey back in time with me for some redesign fun!

I have a healthy fascination with the phenomenon of events in relation to the musical Assassins.

What people are saying:

I'm really not sure of the appeal of Mark Bakalor's site, because frankly I suspect there is none, but hell, I check it at least thrice daily, and you should too!

"Your website is beautifully demented. The moving head thing in the top left just does it. I've been staring at it for the past minute and still find it amusing. You're an inspiration to us all."

"A physical middle ground between Bing Crosby and a sedated Pee-Wee Herman."

"Your website makes me giggle. tee-hee! i cannot stop myself."

Brilliant!!! You're a cross between Robin Willliams and Fred Astaire!
