The Times claimed to have such a policy but it always was, to be generous, fluid, depending on the whims of its critics. The editors expected readers to understand the difference between a "Critic's Notebook" and a review, a distinction lost on pretty much everyone. Producers had conniptions. Mostly I applauded any attempt at critical independence. When Frank Rich reviewed the tryout of Kiss of the Spider Woman, at SUNY Purchase, all bets were off, and when I reviewed The Bridges of Madison County, at the Williamstown Theatre Festival, and that Peter Pan musical at ART, the Times became more aggressive about checking in on tryouts there and elsewhere.
