After reading this comment, I went back and reread Chris' review. Davis "cited" many things he liked, several things he didn't, and put the performance (and the play itself) in historical context, quite nicely. Your comment, on the other hand, reads like it was written by an angry parent.
It is usually customary for reviewers to have a point of view on a subject. Sighting things they liked and things disliked based on examples in the performance. In this review (and I use that term loosely) I find it nothing more than a petty attempt to knock the hard work and excellence of both a fabulous production and its young performers by someone who clearly hates the Theatre and came with the pre-decided notion to produce a bad review.
I find you lack of judgment (and again, I use the term loosely) deplorable and insulting. This review is like a fifteen-year-old boy sitting at his computer trolling YouTube videos. I would suggest you stick to that in the future, as you clearly have no point of view to expound or opinion worth listening to. You are a sad excuse for a journalist and I whole heartily disagree with you and pity your lack of tastes.
To those of reading this who enjoy the Theatre… please go and support this excellent production and its amazing cast. Judge for yourselves and don’t be fooled by haters and trolls.
Chris, are you going to tell us the winners in a future post?

Oh, I see... The secont time it pops up. Duh.
Or a typo.... I believe "beiged" was intended.
It was early in our lives, sometime second to fourth grade, and Laurie, along with Randy Beardsworth and me, hung out together. The project we undertook that I most remember was a poetry magazine we founded. My memories of this are vague. I mostly remember work on it in Randy's carport. As best as I remember, the three of us took on the roles in the production of it: we wrote the poems and made the magazine--can't remember if we typed it or wrote it by hand. But clearly photocopy was not an option. We remained on friendly terms in school through senior year of high school, but nothing topped that early time together.
Made bland by proximity to beige/tan/sand/etc. Not so much besieged, but definitely surrounded.
What is this "beieged?" Is it "besieged beige?"
Best. Review. EVAR.
I must have.
You must've gone to the wrong theatre. I thought it was great.
I saw the Imitation Firearm open for Guns N' Parks at the Empty Chamber in Norman, 1989.
Shouldn't Dave Clancy have already said something about having seen Hoax Device open for Iron Butterfly back in the day?
Oddly, the "Gun Free School Zones" act only covers people without a permit carrying guns to schools. If you've got a permit, you can carry the gun anywhere you damn well please.
The only way to stop a bad person with a hoax device is a good person with a hoax device.
To be clear, the issue may be covered under a different statute. The language here seemed to exclude other than described. So I don't know yet.
I can take a gun to Marquette Park but can't carry it on the sidewalk in front of Holy Rosary school on my way to the park?
It still has 2 performances after tonight!
