BREAKING: I Am As Smart As Tom Stoppard!

Great minds, baby. Great minds.

24 November: I take major issue with the Times article that says you need to read a lot of books before you see The Coast of Utopia.

28 November: So does Tom Stoppard:

The headline on the list of titles, “Required Pretheater Reading,” should be interpreted as “Recommended Post-Theater Reading.”

What kind of madman would write a play that requires the audience to read a dozen books in advance? Come as you are; you’ll be fine.
Amen. I actually wrote a letter to the editors, too. Yet to be published, but you can get an idea of it from my comment left here.
