Copy Call-Out

In the Sunday LA Times, this generally well-done if overly gushy piece on major choreographer/directors has this headline: "Who rules the musical? Broadway musicals seldom rise past kitschy spectacle. But a new class of writers are changing that perception." I hate to nitpick, but nearly every word after the question mark is just dead wrong in some way (including grammatically). UPDATE: The subhead has changed a bit online. It now reads: "Daring storytelling that integrates song and dance is rare. But a new class of writers are striving for the elusive formula." Hmm. Tune, Bourne, Daniele, Stroman, and Marshall are writers? Alert the guilds. A new class are striving, indeed.
