A response to 'Ethics for theater critics'
Does an analysis by a privileged journalist have value?
Theater criticism is an art, and artists have a right to ask for and receive payment for their work. I’d love to provide every writer with adequate reward for his or her valuable work. But to say unpaid or poorly compensated work has no value, and to denigrate the ethics of those writers, is insulting.

The wicked humor of Morris Panych's Vigil comes mostly at the expense of older audiences. That's bad news for cutting-edge theater in Philadelphia.
