I'm suddenly very happy

That Isherwood never reviewed When Is A Clock.

Which has a lot of direct address. A lot. Because, you know, I think it works for the play.

Pshaw! Isherwood is a critic; therefore he's always right. You should have more appreciation for what he does. Without middle-class old White dudes like him, who would be there to protect us Theatre People from ourselves as we experiment in form and structure? Who? Who! WHOOOOOOO!!!!

I thought Isherwood left the Times. That means, of course, that his opinion doesn't count anymore. To anyone.

I don't think he's wrong, I just don't think he's saying anything profound. He gives examples of direct address done right and done wrong, and is really just saying, "When this theatrical device is used poorly, I don't like it." You could say that about anything.
