Re: “It's the Survival of the Fittest on Campus in 'Really Really' at the Beck Center

It's not only a comment, it's forecasting the future..
I couldn't care less about the play, which sounds painful to watch.

Re: “It's the Survival of the Fittest on Campus in 'Really Really' at the Beck Center

Literally that is the most terrifying comment to accompany a theater review that I have ever read.

Re: “It's the Survival of the Fittest on Campus in 'Really Really' at the Beck Center

These are the shit-faced Millennial idiots who put Agent Orange into the Oval Orifice...either by joining up with the deluded Bernie Bros...or by rejecting Shrillary as being too much like their bitchy aunt...and throwing their vote away, thus selling out to Twitler. Thanx, kidz.

I pity the little fools. They will have to live out the rest of their lives with the consequences of their actions in 2016. Most of them will still be alive in 2050, by which time the shit will have really hit the proverbial fan. Me? I'll be long-forgotten dust in the wind.

Twenty-fifty. It sounds like a long time from now, doesn't it, kiddos?'s the blink of an eye. As close as 1984 is distant. Time does not keep marching on as you age. It starts running.

Re: “Apparently Actors Don't Get a Summer Vacation, Given All the Action at Local Theaters

Not quite fair. Leaving Shakespeare aside as a special case of possibly actually worthy perennial appetite, one does see, indeed, much repetition of Same Old Same Old. One notes, on the other hand, that CPT, Mamai, Beck, none too fragile, and convergence-continuum all dish up local premieres.

Wow, lots of tired productions on this list. Doesn't Cleveland theater have something new or different to offer?

Re: “A Lot of Bluffing and Some Poignant Redemption in 'Between Riverside and Crazy'

The actors were all phenomenal and Ms. Ganier was sooooo good, I'd see the play again just to see her part again!!!!

Re: “From the Panel to the Page to the Silver Screen, Celebrating the Work of the Legendary Derf

These shops specialize in selling a particular brand of products, for example beds or clothes therefore making it much simpler for those who are looking for Kids twin size bed. In these shops, quality is a guarantee; eminence of the products sold in specialty stores is never a matter of question. This clearly proves that you will not only get a wide variety of beds but of very high quality. The prices are quite high but discounts are often offered. Even though the prices might be quite high, these beds will last longer and serve you for a longer time now.

Re: “Spaces Gallery Opens its New Location in Hingetown

Beautiful building, but the local artists must be a weak crowd. The metalworks stuff-----ugh! Maybe a high schooler was invited to display?

Way to create bias by singling out and excluding men. Way to be equal.

Re: “Annual Wizard World Returns to Cleveland for Comic, Movie, Pop Culture Fans

Cosplayers are often the target of jokes......but are these fans any different than the ones who proudly wear team garb and/or paint their faces in primary uniform colors to support their favorite pro or college club at a regular season or playoff game?

Oh those poor exploited prisoners. Where's the exhibition for the victims? Oh yeah, I forgot - they don't matter.

Re: “Run to Playhouse Square for "The King and I"

Had to get your leftist tilt in the review, didn't you? It's disgusting.

Re: “Far From Loverly Lady

Thanks for this. I needed the reminder. "A sequined graduate of the Liberace School of Unctuousness". This is the worst review I have ever received and I think you captured the truth of the moment. I had been dreading going out to do that every single show. "queasy" was the absolute truth. I am laughing so hard I'm crying over hear. I stumbled upon this after all these years. You worded it much better than I ever could have. Cheers.

Re: “A Winter Theater Preview for Northeast Ohio

One doesn't have to be a supporter of Trump (I'm most definitely *not*) to feel that these editorial "jokes" were way out of line. If you want to discuss which of the two major political candidates was more belligerent or inclined to blow us up sooner, take it to a data mining shout-out like FB. It doesn't belong here.

Re: “Spaces Gallery Opens its New Location in Hingetown

The VanRooy Coffee Building has beautiful interior spaces...I was there on business when it was first rehabbed into office space over a decade ago, and again for an open house and architectural tour a few years later. It's gorgeous.

While I do understand the concept behind naming the neighborhood "Hingetown" still sounds dumber than dirt. It makes me cringe (Cringetown?) and I want to sing "Gotta get"

Puh-leeze! (eyeroll) It's still the northern fringe (Fringetown?) of Ohio City...always has been...always will be...

Re: “A Winter Theater Preview for Northeast Ohio

Keep your inane political comments to yourself. What makes you think theater-goers are interested in your political views?

Re: “Cleveland's Arts and Cultural Community has Helped Cleveland Shine. It's Time Cleveland Did More

Amen! Preach! I get tired of everything in these big projects always being designed by some company from New York, Chicago, or Europe. Cleveland doesn't need to be like New York or Seattle or Chicago—we need to be like ourselves and stop trying to be anything but that! Local talent isn't just about people who live here, it's about keeping our dollars in town, allowing artists to build their businesses and brands so we can at least sustain our city and the people who love it. If we do this, just maybe we can export Cleveland talent to other places instead of running this trade deficit.
