Is the term “actress” outmoded?

restroom Cover ArtThe Geeks have been accused of being a little “old school” at times (whatever that means), and all three of us remember when the term “actress” was the standard way of referring to a female on stage.  In this abbreviated episode, the Geeks discuss why and when the terminology appeared to change, and whether or not it’s ok to still use the older term.

What do YOU think?  Is this even a debate worth having?  Should those who say “actress” be subject to a social smackdown?  Let us know via our contact form (below) or send a note to Dave, John or Marcia @ theatregeeks.com.
