Theatre as a structure?

I think the lead is wrong. It states that, except for Nortn America, people refering to theatre are most often referring to the building. When a British actor states that he is working in theatre, I feel quite certain that he is, again, referring to the medium of theatre. The lead should simply reflect that theatre can be used as either the medium of the stage or as a word for the stage itself. Like, well, the stage. Or the cinema. And so on.

I'd encourage you to fix it, Shawn. :-) Stephen Ewen 23:16, 1 February 2008 (CST)
Here's what I'd recommend: 1) Create a disambiguation page for Theatre and Theatre (building). 2) Create the Theatre (building) article and move all the text related to the structure to that. 3) Merge and redirect all the text from the Dramatic arts stub into Theatre. If I understand Citizendium correctly, I'd need an Editor for the merge and redirect? Shawn Goldwater 11:55, 2 February 2008 (CST)
No editor needed - you can do that yourself. Stephen Ewen 15:39, 2 February 2008 (CST)
