I'm not going to comment on everything, but I do want to say a quick word about posting under your own or an assumed name. As the victim of a Babycakes rant myself, I really get frustrated when accusations are thrown out about a person under an unclear username. It's unfair, and sometimes it's downright hurtful.
On the other hand, though--just to look at this from all sides--I have sometimes wanted to ask a question or make a comment on this or other local websites, and have refrained because I didn't want it to seem that I was speaking for Theatre Memphis, since they so generously employ me. Too, I didn't want to seem defensive if I was creatively involved with the production in question. So I can see there being some valid reasons to have a nom de plume. It's kind of a small community.
This is my favorite 20th century play. Nigh unto my favorite, full stop. So happy to hear that this is a fine production. How could it be other with so many wonderful people involved on either side of the footlights?
I always suspected that you were homophonic.
Yay!! I'm so excited to see this! What a risk to take! How wonderful!
In our defense, Chris--the show IS ignant.
