Funny what a little photo editing can make ya think

The Guthrie Theater is a large scale model of what large amounts of theaters around the bustling Twin City's Performing arts community create on a much smaller scale. Phenomena's are made up of Things, Frameworks, and Clockworks. Frameworks are something that the thing is or is similar to other things and a Clockwork is the pattern that the things do.

With the Guthrie the Thing is the productions they produce for the community. The Frameworks are the shows because, like shows other theaters put on they are Theatrical productions intended for the audience's enjoyment. The Clockwork is the pattern of shows coming through the Guthrie, one show finishes then the next show comes into town for it's set run time and then it to goes on it's way.
