Re: “Goodbye Dick

A note about the reviewer: He showed up five minutes late with a girl who looked half asleep, then proceeded to make his way to the very back of the theater. The other 40 or so of us were all sat up front ready for a good time. And then he doesn't bother to spell the writer's name properly (it was on the playbill). I guess he was making his intentions known.

I don't know if he slept through sections or was busy tweeting, but he's willfully ignoring large portions of the play. Yes, it was sloppy. Yes, some of the stage management was bad. But did Keith mention any technical errors? No. He focuses on the lines of one speech from one character who, SPOILERS, gets killed for being a Chicago-hating dick.

The show has some flaws. It also has some laughs. Keith has mentioned neither of these.
