Right. And I'll say this again, as the one who posted about this initially - for me it wasn't that she hadn't seen the show. It was that she felt comfortable admitting it. She easily could have pretended she had. I'm saying she did a GOOD thing by saying it.

There was the odd case of a review of one of my shows in Boston some years back - a musical property which exists in several differing versions - and one critic (who I respected at the time) referred to moments/songs/characters that belonged to the OTHER version, that weren't in our production at all. I have always questioned whether she actually saw the show, and/or if she just wasn't paying attention and really thought she heard and saw the things she wrote about. I really took offense to that.
