This is an eloquent meditation, as always, Katherine. But I want to say: I don’t give two hoots about changing Thom Nickels’ mind. If he had posted that rant on Facebook, e.g. (and for some reason I’d had occasion to see it), I would have walked on by. But this is being published in the Huff Post — a national rag. And even if the readership of this particular post will be limited, I don’t feel like letting the Philagelphia theater community be maligned in front of a national readership and let that go unchallenged. The readers AND HuffPost should know this guy can’t find his ass with both hands.
(Oh, and — Tom Stoppard: not dead!) ;)
