Are you serious? AUGUST:OSAGE COUNTY BEING COMPARED TO MAMA'S FAMILY? And then you don't compare them, show where they intersect in theme, or exhibit a single tiny smidgen of wit. You just dumb the whole thing down (after assuming people who read theater articles haven't heard of LONG DA'S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT which actually tells us a lot about you), and oh, what's the point. There are already too many reviewers with witless stabs at being clever, who come off as just smug and uninformed as opposed to actual critics with a love for he form, a sharp eye, sharp ear, and a sharper pen who can actually critique what's on the stage before them. I hope for the sake of the theater in the Twinz that you are not replacing Papatola, whom I respect whether I agree with him or not, with somebody who thinks comparing one Pulitzer Prize play with another is too much for theater goers and gives them a failed series based on sketches from the Carol Burnett Show. Ugh! When Carol Burnett wrote her play with her daughter Carrie, a drama about family, I know for a fact she wasn't thinking"How else can I make this like MAMA'S FAMILY. Boy, will we miss you, Dominic. So it goes.
