Note to the Readers of these Critiques, Nov. 2, 2015

After 90 critiques over seven years, this website is going to retire. It may return in a few months with a different purpose, but that decision has yet to be made. The author hopes that his small circle of readers will continue appreciating what a thoughtfully written, well-acted play -- or a tightly composed, well-sung opera -- can say to us about the larger questions. And in that spirit, perhaps those same readers, if they're not doing so already, will evangelize on behalf of live theatre to ensure that whenever one audience applauds in gratitude, another audience applauds in anticipation.
