I was on the Theater Reviews page and noticed his name strangely absent below Brantley's. He's not even listed in the "Other Reviewers" section. Also, if you click on the Rock of Ages review (which I distinctly remember Isherwood writing), his name is missing and so too is the review.

Did I miss something? Is this a computer glitch? Or, *Gasp!* is he really gone?
Where Did Isherwood Go?

This is interesting. Look at this listing of all his articles (most recent published last Sunday). His name isn't available to click on. I wonder what's up.
Isherwood
"You travel alone because other people are only there to remind you how much that hook hurts that we all bit down on. Wait for that one day we can bite free and get back out there in space where we belong, sail back over water, over skies, into space, the hook finally out of our mouths and we wander back out there in space spawning to other planets never to return hurrah to earth and we'll look back and can't even see these lives here anymore. Only the taste of blood to remind us we ever existed. The earth is small. We're gone. We're dead. We're safe." -John Guare, Landscape of the Body

This is very strange...and if he is gone why wouldn't he be under past reviewers?

May be a glitch - he's certainly still writing for them, as he has at least one story in the upcoming fall preview.

My name wasn't, isn't, and will never be Scott.

Or maybe he has decided to go back and write biographies of gay porn stars. . .
Do you know what happens when you let Veal Prince Orloff sit in an oven too long?

He's co-writing Barbara Cook's memoirs, so possibly he has been given some time off to do so.

It's fine if he is co-authoring Cook's book, however, there is a difference between giving someone a break to work on another project verses making it look like they have never worked for you at all. The Times made it look like the man just up and left on bad terms rather then them letting him take a break to work on other projects.

The literate theatre-loving public would be lucky if he were gone; that would only leave Hack Brantley to get the ax. Not that the Times would ever dream of replacing either with a good writer...
