Smoking on Stage UpdateBy Laura & Mike Clark • Mar 25th, 2008 • Category: News
In October 2006, we shared the story that smoking on stage in Colorado was banned under a proposed state law. The Denver Post is reporting in their article Smoking ban extends to stage: “A Colorado appeals court ruled on Thursday that smoking by an actor on stage, while possibly important to character and theatrical message, is still banned by the state’s two-year-old indoor smoking law.” The Colorado law covers any kind of smoking inside a building, tobacco or herbal. Imagine a play like Agnes of God without the character smoking.
