I know that the title of this post isn't very subtle. Neither is Isherwood, who lays the smack down on this year's Humana Festival like a drunken professional wrestler who just lost his job.
I can't, honestly, take issue with Isherwood's assessment because I haven't seen these shows and know no one involved. I do think he could have been...nicer? Is that terribly naive?
It's not like people are producing these plays to personally piss him off.
