On theatre and politics

If one were so inclined, that person might command their mouse to click upon this link to Matthew Freeman’s theatre blog and marvel at the mountainous hilarity of his prose. One would not be dissapointed, wethinks:

“People in the theatre are pretentious snobs who write by candlelight, even though the rest of us are using lightbulbs. If you go to see a Broadway show, you’re going to see a cheap, Circus-like knock-off of a movie or you’re going to see a play that sounds like they had to blow the dust off of it before they put it on stage.

“I’m also hearing, out there:

“Theatre is high art, a landscape for the mind, a sort of spiritual happening that is ceaselessly compromised by the desires of the revolting marketplace and its progeny.”

And if it is context that one’s heart desires, one shall find it here.
