As I didn't do so as they came out, this post is to link to all the responses and reviews that When is a Clock gathered during its run.

The New York Times


Time Out New York

Showbusiness Weekly


Curtain Up

That Sounds Cool

Abra Goes


Anyhow, that's for the archives. Now... what's next?

Matt -- I'm curious: how much of this coverage do you think is attributable to your blogging presence? Do you think your blog has any effect at all, or does it add to the likelihood of attention being paid? Obviously, some of these are by other bloggers -- but, say, the NY Times. What do you think?

Freeman said...

Perhaps my merits as a writer have something to do with it?

Or at least some part of it?

One might hope?

I think there are lots of factors in one's press coverage.

Scott Walters said...

Matt -- I didn't mean the quality of the reviews -- of course that is completely your merit as a writer, and well-deserved. What I was asking was whether the blog provides a foot in the door as far as getting critics to attend your show, given the intense competition for coverage. I'm asking a really practical question about whether there are real-life benefits to blogging.

Yo. Why all the deleting?

Freeman said...

Not my usual practice. But I don't like to comment on the reviews very much.

Christine said...


I have already read and memorized what you and David said though.

I'm going to write a play about it.

Freeman said...

I hope play gets tons of press.

Christine said...

Oh, it will. It will. You watch.
