A view of theater in Richmond, VA, and occasionally other places too.
Sheesh. Mary Burruss doesn't have to like everything she sees, but flat-out insulting a show that, yes, has its flaws but which are largely the fault of the script and NOT the actors (who did a fine job with what they were given)? That's just rude. She needs to be a bit more diplomatic sometimes. Like I said, it's not required that she gives happy fluffy reviews to everything, but she crosses the line from "critical" to "ugly" a little too often. It is possible to give a negative review without making yourself sound like a jerk. I'm sure she's a nice person in real life, but one would never know it from most of her reviews, which seem to make her sound like a generally unhappy person.
