Letters to CurtainUp --2013
March 27, 2014. I don't agree with all the knocks this very fine play received. It WAS a bit heavy on the messages and the kid was a stage kind of kid so thank you for getting it right-- and those metaphor observations. -- three women of a certain age who saw, liked and are glad not to be as bigoted as the Tyne Daly character.
March 12, 2014. If there'd been an intermission at Architecture of Becoming, surely they'd have lost a large share of the already meager audience. As you put it -- what a mish-mash. A high school production couldn't be more amateurish. Fortunately, I had a free ticket as I'd rather have donated any money I might have spent to a good cause. -- Ann Whitehead, Brooklyn.
March 12, 2014. Just goes to show you department-- don't give up on a playwright whose work doesn't grab you. Her MacArthur genius credentials notwithstanding I wasn't greatly taken with Sarah Ruhl until the Vibrator Play which I liked quite a bit. But I've now fallen in love with her after the smoochy Stage Kiss. I sure hope this gets the longer running production it deserves. Marsha Levitan, NYC
March 9, 2014. Will wonders never cease. A play by Will Eno I really enjoyed. Like you, after seeing Open House, I look forward to his Realistic Joneses. Barry Goodman, Huntington, NY.
February 21, 2014. Call me a lowbrow and sentimentalist, but I loved The Bridges of Madison Country. I loved Kelli O'Hara, but oh boy, if Steven Pasquale asked me to burn my bridges behind me-- I would, I would! -- Jennie (name withheld but I'm Italian!)
February 21, 2014. Too much information and not enough to love in Churchill's assemblae. It IS cleverly presented-- just too much. . .Mark Goldberg and Tim Seidman, Manhattan.
February 2, 2014. I thought your review [A Man's a Man]was fair where some of your colleagues in other publications were unnecessarily unkind. I did think the music deserved more praise though.-- MPoerio
