"The problem with this, Michael, like the problem with what we discussed the other day, is that you seem to think that your (perfectly valid) take is somehow controlling or predominant. Here are two more shows in which most reviews are positive (and you don't need to tell me that your cohort is aligned with you). (SWM was written by a woman, btw...) The point you try to make here is intellectually unfathomable in any objective context."

I don't know how to respond, because I think you misread my post -- evidenced by the fact that you wrote "SWM was written by a woman" as if correcting me, when that was my point in the first place. But maybe I confused you in my use of dashes, because what I meant was that neither STRAIGHT WHITE MEN nor DADDY were written by white males -- SWM was written by an Asian-American woman, DADDY by a black male (I assume African-American, but I'm not sure).

And I don't think my take is "controlling" or "predominant," I just think that some plays are produced for reasons other than the quality of the writing, and there are several different reasons for that, as I noted. Of course, because it's so subjective, it's impossible to determine the percentage of unworthy plays produced for any specific reasons, so I'm not claiming that my opinion is controlling or predominant in that sense.
