Brian Howe is the INDY's Managing Editor for Arts & Culture.
Thanks RobU. This review ran online only.
Dude's comments are objectively disgusting. Still, I would like to invite our commenters who have taken to retaliating in kind to seriously consider whether they want to engage in a race to the bottom with him. I can sympathize with the impulse to fight fire with fire, but it can leave our comments section as a gross stew of mom jokes, and then no one wins. Reason and civility are still, I think, the best ways to fight hateful hyperbole. Just a thought on a trend I've noticed lately.
The shows haven't been announced yet. As the post says, those who can't make it to Raleigh that day can audition online. We noted their embrace of the WTF moniker in the original story linked here. It doesn't mean the plays are "adult," it's just funny. There is no F-bomb except an implicit one. The kids will be OK.
It's true, proudly, I'm more concerned with people carrying deadly weapons in public than with what people do consensually in their private lives, which "the children" wouldn't even know about if the news media had its priorities in order. That seems quite reasonable to me.
Added the website to the story, thanks for that.
I can definitely think of one I loved that isn't on Byron's list, though it was touring rather than locally produced:
Mychaelee, we do not refuse to attend and critique any theater groups. We see as much as humanly possible, and cover everything from the biggest professional theaters to the smallest community ones. So I'm really not sure what the subtext of your comment is. If there's a theater group you feel we have overlooked, I would be happy to learn more about it. You can reach me at email@example.com.
