Did these two see the same plays?

Chris Jones and Hedy Weiss

Chris Jones, Tribune, on Steppenwolf's Russian Transport:

"Uneven, less than ideally cast and weirdly dull affair. . . with no cohesive world imagined, the production mostly just meanders . . . generalized mush . . . wallows in stereotype . . . nary a sharp edge anywhere . . ."

Hedy Weiss, Sun-Times, on the same:

"Fierce and fevered . . . scorchingly acted . . . angry, passionate drama . . ."

Hedy Weiss, on the Goodman Theatre's Buzzer:

"Astoundingly bad . . . a wholly contrived, insulting, phony piece of work . . . a transparent construct masquerading as a deep drama."

Chris Jones on the same:

"sizzling new drama . . . admirably complex and wholly unflinching . . . "

I've seen one of these new shows, but I'm staying out of it.
