    I keep reading this subject line in a pirate voice, and it changes the meaning entirely.

  • LONG DAY'S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT Reviews  Apr 28 2016, 09:26:54 AM


    I don’t read the Times review as a pan or as dismissive. To me, it’s very even-handed. I have no basis for an opinion on how much the show has or has not evolved since the first preview, but what Brantley describes is very much what I saw onstage.

  • LONG DAY'S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT Reviews  Apr 28 2016, 08:27:03 AM


    Brantley effectively put into words a lot of what I felt when I saw the show.  But I saw the first preview and figured things would coalesce and even out after a couple weeks. It sounds like they haven’t.

  • Thank You for all the Bullsht  Apr 22 2016, 07:39:00 AM


    These reviews aren’t surprising. Full disclosure: I’m not a big fan of the movie or BEE’s writing in general, but the footage of the press preview that aired on “Theater Talk” a couple of weeks ago did nothing to get me interested in seeing this incarnation of Patrick Bateman’s story.  It looked – at least, divorced from the context of the rest of the show – pretty bad.

  • Jonathan Pryce in Merchant of Venice  Apr 21 2016, 04:59:12 PM


    OMG, JB, thank you for posting about this. Pryce is one of my favorite actors, and MERCHANT is one of my favorite plays. I didn’t even know this was happening.

    It’s exactly that quality that makes Shannon one of my favorite actors – and a quality I think every great actor possesses, though it isn’t limited to danger – just any kind of potential unpredictability.  PSH and Burton and Sellers and Ledger had it. Streep, DDL, and Swinton have it. Brando and Pacino – at least in the first halves of their careers. It’s the acting equivalent of the tactic Sondheim describes using in composition as (I&rs

  • Leslie Odom Jr. involved in awkward and lame skit  Apr 13 2016, 10:13:43 AM


    In my experience, “CP time” isn’t a term used by Caucasians to denigrate African-Americans, but rather a term used reflexively by African-Americans, especially in groups made up predominantly of African-Americans, which is likely why it feels so tin-eared in this context. It entered my lexicon years ago during an extended stint with an African-American-run theater company, where it was used pretty much daily since company and crew members often arrived late and

    Ha ha funny.

  • Leslie Odom Jr. involved in awkward political moment  Apr 12 2016, 02:09:39 PM


    I thought it was funny.  Not expertly executed, but funny, and it gets funnier the more I think about it.

    Yeah, I wish Roxy would tell us what show this is. His information about it is confusing.

    Yeah, I have no problem with the ToS not being updated yet. I'm just looking for consistency between words and actions.

    From Rob's post on page 19 of this thread:

    "This new, and more clear and communicative warning and suspension system will indeed alert posters as to when something was removed, and why."

  • report abuse links opinion thread  Mar 15 2016, 07:26:23 AM


    Are posters still not receiving notifications and an explanation of why when a post is removed?

  • report abuse links opinion thread  Mar 14 2016, 03:20:09 PM


    Thank you, Rob and AC, for your responses. AC, if you are satisfied with Rob’s actions in moderating Margo, then I trust them to have been well-executed.


    Just to follow up on Namo and PRS’s suspensions so that I’m understanding fully -- other members asked their accounts to be removed and/or suspended, and so they were?

  • report abuse links opinion thread  Mar 14 2016, 02:31:07 PM


    Could you explain why PRS's request for deletion was not honored or why Margo's posts stand?

  • report abuse links opinion thread  Mar 14 2016, 02:16:29 PM


    Ms. Joy brushes up against an important thing to remember – the notion that the “positives” can exist without the “negatives” is preposterous. You can’t isolate aspects of discussion and pretend they appeared spontaneously, from a vacuum.  Even though I think he’s been far, far too generous to and easy on Ms. Murin, Rob’s promises of better – or, at least, more specific – moderation in order to allow the positives

    Truly, and significantly, AC. This can be corroborated by several other posters, and they are welcome to do so here if they'd like.

    Phyllis Rogers Stone did not ask me to share this information, but it seems important in terms of contextualizing the fallout of this nonsense, and I share it with his blessing. He asked for his account to be deleted; instead, it was suspended. He does not plan on returning to the board.
