A brief note on this reviewer's question of "How does a play as bad as Stage Kiss (through March 23) get produced? ...maybe Playwrights Horizons wanted something from her, and maybe she dug up something from the bottom of a drawer and over-embroidered it."
'Stage Kiss' was commissioned by the Goodman Theater in Chicago, where it premiered in 2011. This whole review is poorly written. But I don't expect much from a reviewer who didn't do basic research on their topic.
i always disagree with you and think you are kind of truly vile.
Just wanted to let you know that Dance Theater Workshop no longer exists. It's now called New York Live Arts after a merger with the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company.
If you're going to write dismissive reviews without any real content or examination of the piece you're supposed to be reviewing you should at least fact check it.
Also, please read this: http://www.brooklynrail.org/2012/12/artseen/re-art-criticism-today-martha
Art Criticism should be thoughtful, should place work in context, and should give the reader a way to understand and access the work. Your piece does none of this. Anybody can go online and tell the world they thought a particular work of art was pointless. That is not your job. Please take your role more seriously.
Also, please tell your editor to send someone who knows about and/or has a meaningful relationship to/knowledge of dance to the next dance performance they want to review.
