It would be presumptuous to say that Isaac Butler takes the words out of my mouth with this open letter to the Times re: its not running my review of In Public by playwright George Hunka, which Mr. Butler directed. Suffice to say I wish I'd written it, and I hope it clears the air. I'm still mortified by the impasse, both as a particular instance of all-around unfortunateness and for its larger implications for the alternately fluid and barbed-wired lines between criticism and theatre practice. As a sometime theatre artist and performer myself, this is pause-giving food for thought, indeed. And it's not exactly a pause that refreshes.
UPDATE: Playgoer has more and more.
