Very well said, and I concur. Full disclosure: I saw the show 3 times, thanks to TDF. It was balm to my bruised soul last fall. But I've also discovered: those who dislike the book -- let's call it a play, I have the published script from the UK -- cannot be dissuaded. I've tried, but my case is shouted down. (I was even indicted on one of these boards as having "too little understanding of what a 'cliche' is.") So I don't argue anymore. I do believe the show's impact is mysterious, its use of the Depression -- rather that distancing -- taking us deeper into contemporary feelings of disenfranchisement and alienation. Yet as I noted, I can't explicate precisely how. Such is art, its messaging's success subjectively determined, personal, profound, ineffable. I want to see it a 4the time before it's gone.
