Farewell: Don't feel like talkin' any more
Posted by: Billhaven 11:26 pm EDT 08/17/21

The 2 recent threads: concerning Alice Ripley and then Laura Osnes have convinced me that I no longer want to be a part of this online "community". The avalanche of snide, smug and condescending remarks, and gaseous posturing by this group of anonymous people has finally got to me. I've enjoyed sharing theatrical pleasures: stories and anecdotes or maybe some insights but I don't need to share vitriol, invective and self righteous outrage. It's lost its appeal. It's not how how I want to live my life. So, have at me if you want. I'll be reading a novel by some pool or having al conversation with folks I like and care about. One shout out to AlanScott who has given his knowledge and expertise with never a trace of snark. I admire his tact and restraint. I don't have that so I will take my leave. Here's to theatre. I've spent my entire life in it, among kind and talented people. That's who I intend to spend the rest of my life with.
