Re: “Theater Review: A Midsummer Night's Dream, Vermont Shakespeare Co.

I saw the production and thought the "timelessness" was what was conveyed through the different costumes. The costumes were more about character personality, than a set time. I think the reviewer missed that fact. Helena's state of dress and undress, for instance, fit her perfectly. Lysander's greaser/bad boy was conveyed through his Brando-esque, On the Waterfront attire. In closing, The review really did a rather heavy job of summarizing Shakespeare's play, but was a bit sparse on its review of the actual performance.

Re: “Fun Home! The Musical!

Alison -- I was wondering, what was it like to draw the actors who portrayed your family for this strip compared to drawing your real family members for the book? Did your hand sometimes get confused between the two? Drawing an actor playing portraying a version of you must be a mind-spinning self-portrait.

Re: “Theater review: The Fool's Riddle: Hysteria Has No House

Wow, what a cruel and heartless review.
What better way to kill local art than disrespect the incredible amount of artistic heart and soul that have gone into the creation of this show.

"Having your curiosity satisfied" - like she is some kind of sideshow act? She is an artist expressing to her best with full effort.

Your dismissive tone around the "polemics about misogyny, mental illness and eroticism" says more to me about your character than the content and delivery of this powerful piece of art.

"mispronouncing words that perhaps she's only read and never heard" wtf? Your projections are less than professional.
