You have a point


I'll go on record as disagreeing with you and Kenny. If that's a critic's job, then what are the rest of us supposed to be doing? Just because we're not doing it is no reason to blame BB.

If the commercial OB community were doing their job, we'd have had at least one strike, or some stand, by now. But no, it's easier to put it on the ones who bring the problem to light.


I posted some thoughts on this at my site.


It would have been nice if Brantley had weighed in on the issue - we need all the help we can get. It also would have been a better and smarter article if he had. But I'm not sure it's his job. As a critic, his job is too observe theater and discuss on its perceived artistic merit. He doesn't have to be a mouthpiece for cultural or economic change within the theater community if he doesn't want to. Although the fact that he doesn't seem to want to speaks volumes about him (and his relationship with the theater).



Why bother having a "Critic's Notebook" section then? Why do we need to hear form Brantley beyond his original reviews?
