To the editors:

As one who has never been reticent about criticizing your theatre critics, I would like to express my pleasure at the increasing frequency with which reviews by Mary Shen Barnidge have been turning up in your pages. It's really nice to read a critic who seems to be more interested in addressing my intelligence and informing me about the play and the production than in making a display of his/her own wit. This lady is good. Please let's have more of her.
