Dear Charles Isherwood,
I'm not one to criticize the critics. I'm also sorry you feel underwhelmed by the theatrical leftovers you're finding this Thanksgiving. I can only hope that, in the midst of the strike, it's not your intention to drive audiences away from all the plays that are currently up-and-running all over the city.
All the best,
PS - You're not having Thanksgiving Dinner with Sarah Ruhl and her family? Color me shocked.
