"Your premise is that these are examples of unworthy plays, but that is based only on your opinions which are not in line with the majority opinions. And again, nothing wrong with your opinions being different, but they cannot provide an intellectually sound foundation for your conclusion. And this seems to be a troubling (to me) pattern lately."

I think I understand, and I agree that this would be troubling if it were, in fact, what I'm doing -- but I don't think this is what I'm doing.

Maybe there is some confusion over what plays we're discussing in this thread? My memory of STRAIGHT WHITE MEN is that many of the reviews for the play itself were mixed to negative, and although I've only read three reviews of DADDY in the past couple of days, there were all very negative. As far as Shanley and McNally, so many of their plays have been so negatively received that I hardly think I need cite any examples. Can you specify which examples I've given of plays I consider unworthy where that opinion was not in line with the majority?

And before you bring up TORCH SONG again, I can only repeat that a LOT of the word of mouth that I PERSONALLY heard about the recent production was very negative -- but I do recognize that this does not comport with the majority of reviews that were written by professional theater critics.
