Wednesday’s appointment of a tested dramatist, Professor Sunday Ododo as General Manager of the National Theatre is generating a buzz.
THE appointment of Professor Sunday Enessi Ododo as the General Manager of the National Theatre has, expectedly, been received with cautious optimism in the cultural community.
