Re: “'Selfies at the Clown Motel' Confounds at Convergence-Continuum

"Selfie" comes from the word "self"...as does "selfish"...and they are not dissimilar...

Re: “Great Singing Perfectly Complements a Lush Production in 'Blues in the Night' at Karamu

I knew this would be a great opening show for Karamu House. I know these performers personally, and I am sitting in Tallahassee, Florida, wishing I was there and being there in spirit all along. BRAVO! What a superb review. CONGRATULATIONS!

Re: “'Ring of Fire', Johnny Cash Jukebox Musical, Delights at Porthouse

"All of the performances are top notch." And the beautiful harmonizing is awesome! There are times when you can't distinguish which 'Johnny' is singing. This is definitely a Great show that shouldn't be missed. I would love to see this cast together again in another production ......

Re: “A Boozy Druggie Leads His Flock Into a Dead-end Story in Jerusalem at Ensemble Theatre

Thank you for really adding something to this article with your inane comment; I have the attention span of a toddler, three hours?! Waaaaaaa!

And now back to reading something that won't make me weep for the elderly shitting their pants and shitting out their deep thoughts.

Re: “A Boozy Druggie Leads His Flock Into a Dead-end Story in Jerusalem at Ensemble Theatre

This is one of those stories that sounds so awfully bad that it might actually be good.
But not for almost three hours. That's much too much.
It would end up feeling like three hours in the dentist chair...sheer torture.

Thanks for the heads-up.

Re: “'If/Then' at Playhouse Square Wants to Have it Both Ways and Gets Neither

I wanted most this season to see IF/THEN. So glad that I did. Waiting in the balcony for some of the crowd to leave, the diverse occupants of seats in the row I was in began talking....gender and ages notwithstanding, we all thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Was it emotional? Nobody in reviews has found much emotion, yet all of us admitted to damp cheeks during Act II. This was a show worth experiencing! Enjoyed it more than Bullets Over Broadway and Gentleman's Guide to Murder.
PS---would I have liked seeing/hearing Idina Menzel? Of course! But Jackie Burns IS actually worth the price of admission.....really she is....

Excellently written review.

Re: “'If/Then' at Playhouse Square Wants to Have it Both Ways and Gets Neither

You always know when a show isn't worth con$ideration. The frequency of commercials for the event on local television rival that of a national political campaign, and free tickets are flying out of local media outlets like the Buzzards in Hinckley.

She doesn't sleep with her boss in either storyline, although she tries to.

Re: “The Giggles Come Fast and Furious, but the Rest is a Bit Shallow, in "The Realistic Joneses"

I was mystified by the scenic design. I thought there was smoke behind the house and I had to idea what the ziz zags on the stage were. I also found the "store" set up very confusing, scenically. That said, I tremendously enjoyed the story, characters and dialog, but also felt emotionally a bit cut off. The acting seems top notch and I very much felt they all had the potential to take the story to a higher plane.

Re: “Revisiting the Hough Riots in "Incendiaries" at Cleveland Public Theatre

A primer on why Hough finally exploded in frustration and rage can be found in the book -- "A Ghetto Takes Shape: Black Cleveland, 1870-1930" by Kenneth L. Kusmer.

Re: “The Winners for the Best of Cleveland Theater in 2015 Are...

Next year hire a critic who actually cares about theatre and giving awards. It's a disservice to the creative actors and actresses who are reviewed with a disclaimer that the accolades are essentially stupid.

Re: “Mary Poppins Plays Her Trump Card and Wins

Was the framing device of comparing this lovely musical to the republican debates really necessary? Like what did that add to your review? I mean I get it, I don't care for any of the ponies the Republicans trotted out there either, but If you want to write an opinion piece, don't do it in the arts section.

Re: “A Personal Reaction to 'American Idiot' at Beck Center

I grew up in the sixties and i loved it the first time i saw it. The show was emotionally charged with challenges of the millennial. While the challenges are different from what i may have experienced, the characters proved to me the pain is still the same.
