GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) -- Intermissions at a Grand Rapids theater have their own drama: Critics say there aren't enough bathrooms for women.

The executive director of Broadway Grand Rapids says women are missing part of the second act at DeVos Performance Hall. Mike Lloyd says it's become a "real bottleneck."

Broadway Grand Rapids brings popular touring shows to the city. Lloyd says DeVos Hall should convert all men's bathrooms to women-only and then build bathrooms for men in a cloak room.

Richard MacKeigan, general manager for the company that runs DeVos Hall, says there's no quick, inexpensive fix. He says men's bathrooms sometimes are posted for women only during shows that mostly attract women.
