Re: “Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins gives Jewish kids their own inispid holiday show

Well, another idiot millennial critic misspeaks. Strawdog's production record over the years has proven themselves well-equipped for much more than "weird but unique noir-inspired thrillers." If idiot millennial Maller had bothered to see Strawdog's last show, "Masque Macabre," would he have called it "run-of-the-mill family theater"? I don't think so.

And as for family theater, even if Strawdog was intending to go there exclusively (and they aren't), what's wrong with family theater? If you want your audience not to die on you, as so many off-Loop companies are close to experiencing, you gotta get the habit going while they're young.

And by the way, idiot millennial, "Hershel" isn't the current mainstage show. Didn't you notice the signs in the lobby for "The Revolutionists," or are you just a functional moron?

All the more reason to mourn the departure of Tony Adler as the Reader's theater critic lineup starts to resemble more and more the idiot millennial pompous asses Couling, Greene, Van Ort and McGrath over at Newcity.

Re: “Punk’s not dead—and it’s not white either

Well, aren't we jealous? And I thought punks didn't give a fuck about what other people thought.
