What Simon's fans and detractors alike fail to appreciate is that he is a complicated critic who often defies predictability. If you took the time to actually read his review of Fela! -- which is just one example of his catholicity of taste and ability to upend preconceived ideas about what makes for exciting theater -- you might rethink your notion that he has only one style and tone. Has he changed over the years? Of course he has; what critic hasn't? Nevertheless, I trust that he had a pretty good time at Moulin Rouge and said as much, end of story. But thanks for giving me permission to believe what I wish.
