Spoiler alert: It's not about Cleveland. For what it's worth, Clybourne Park is supposed to be a racially-changing and gentrifying neighborhood just to the south and west of downtown Chicago.
Also wish they'd done their homework on the TV spot: It's "PULL it, sir" Prize...and NOT the ignorant-sounding "PEW-lit-zer"...
Unless you're a chicken farmer who wins it...then it's the Pullet Surprise.

Those looking for a solid read on the historical reality of the city, - "A Ghetto Takes Shape: Black Cleveland, 1870-1930" by Kenneth L. Kusmer - is indispensable.
I went and seen this with my boyfriend the second day of the run. It was amazing. The cast does an amazing job portraying the surrealism that was Salvadore Dali. Bravo Grey Cross... Wonderful Job!
The promo photo looks like it could have been pulled from Xanadu!
Just want u to see the baby load. How cryin' overdue.
The photo looks like the alt-Americana version of Bob and Doug McKenzie.
There are no garbage cans in Waiting for Godot. I believe you may be thinking of Endgame.
You need to be schooled in history. Nothing Ms. Howey says is untrue. Just because you think her review is politically biased (based on one sentence), you're calling for her dismissal. This illustrates how intolerant you and your ilk are. In case you haven't noticed, The Scene (and other papers like it around the country) have always celebrated those those left of center. Or, did you miss that obvious point as well?
"The entire review reads like your petty attempt to state your political views." Dramatic, much?
In short, Ms. Howey isn't writing to appease YOU. Pipe down.
And another thing, sister, when you earn the right to present your views on what's happening in the Cleveland Arts Scene, you can earn a job at The Scene. Do you think that anyone on the staff is paid so handsomely that they're using it as a platform to push a political agenda? I just looked up your profile. If ANYONE is pushing a political agenda, it's YOU with your self-appointed "titles." Put that in your tea-bagging pipe and smoke it.
A true professional reviewer sticks to the performances without the mention of politics. However, if you are going to venture into the political arena, get your facts straight!
The entire review reads like your petty attempt to state your political views. The new management at Scene should reconsider your position!
Saw it last Saturday...first time I've ever left a show at intermission.
That's a very, um, interesting picture.
I'm somewhat surprised that the article doesn't mention what seems like a probable influence, Thirty Two Short Films About Glenn Gould from 1993.
SWEENEY TODD was rehearsed and opened in Boise before RICHARD III, so I can't imagine how it was a planned inside joke.
Can I have the seats of the little old ladies who walk out after the blasphemy (Hasa Diga Eebowai) of Act I?
Is this about the x-men version of Iceman? Wait, it's not? Oops, wrong page.
Horses aren't exactly the sharpest knives in the drawer btw...
from a former horseperson.., Just sayin'
My friend Flicka...
These are better stories so put them on the stage....
If you really want the horses to be lifelike, have them poop on the stage, and fling it into the crows as a souvenir!
Don't look a gift horse in the mouth.
