Ok, ok, Isherwood. We get it. You love Sarah Ruhl. Ok!? Fine. Why? Because she went to Brown? Is that it? Is that it?!

I'm sorry. I don't know what came over me.

Do you not like Sarah Ruhl's writing? I've read a few of her plays and I rather like them.

Do I think they are "the cure for cancer" that Isherwood makes them out to be? Of course not, but I do believe that she has unique original voice.

I was being cheeky.

Zack said...

Oh. I do agree though, that there are some reviewers that seem to lick up anything a certain organization produces or a certain playwright writes even if the product is crap.

"In a less felicitous production, I can imagine the play cloying into preciousness."

BOOM! Headshot!
