Re: “The Philanderer

I usually have great respect for your opinions, but in this case, I am slightly baffled by your commentary. ShawChicago is renowned for its staged readings, or concert readings. It is the performance format they have used (with the exception of two performances) for the past 17 years. Did the Reader inform you that you were being sent to review a staged reading, or are you simply unfamiliar with ShawChicago? Your comment, "Anchored to stationary music stands,...which should properly called a staged reading,..." displays your ignorance of a 17-year-old Chicago institution. It is certainly forgivable if this is the first time you've been to a ShawChicago performance, and the concert reading format isn't for everyone. However, next time, I would recommend you do a little research on the company you're assigned to review. Otherwise, keep up the good work. As I stated earlier, I usually enjoy reading your reviews, and have great respect for your opinions.
