SINCE JEANNE COOPER left the Washington Post, you guys have had the best theater reviewer in D.C., hands down (Lloyd Rose has great analytic powers but is hampered by eighth-grade reading/listening comprehension skills, and while the Washington Times‘ Nelson Pressley has good taste, he seldom has any valuable analysis and he’s no writer—to put it kindly).
So what’s my beef? Bob Mondello only rarely reviews the kind of theater I like to see. Do I sound self-absorbed? Well, I can’t be the only person in the District who’d have preferred knowing Mondello’s opinion on Woyzek to knowing his opinion on My Life as Kim Novak.
Your Dec. 23, 1994, issue is the same old bag; why review
Come on, Bob, D.C.’s legit theater needs you! How about Black Nativity? Please review Stage Guild’s Game of Love and Chance…for me, Bob?
