Re: “A Civil War Christmas: An American Musical Celebration

Hey Tony. You need never review anything that isn't Jewish/Yiddish/Hebrew again. You are pathologically incapable of watching anything with even a hint of Christianity with even a semblance of objectivity. 20 years ago you railed against the Goodman Theatre's A CHRISTMAS CAROL. After all these years that one still puzzles me. How can you hate a piece that so beautifully reflects our very human need for redemption, forgiveness, and deeper connectivity to the world? These are not Christian, or Jewish, or Muslim, or any specific religion's claim. You were pissed that you subjected your son to this abomination. I swore I would never read another review with your name on it from that day forward, and I haven't - until today. I haven't picked up a copy of the Reader since, either. As I wrote to your editor all those years ago,"Allowing Mr. Adler's loathsome, bitter, vitriol against all things Christian pass as criticism is journalistically irresponsible."
As a Jew, you hate Christmas. We get it. Now go away if you can't do your job during these three or four weeks every year. I know the good people at Northlight Theatre deserved a better effort from you, and a modicum of respect for their efforts.
