I Also Can't Not...

...link to this Campbell Robertson piece in today's City section: Bohemia Takes Its Final Bows. Yes, Rent is closing and yes, it's interesting to reflect on the disappearance of the world it tried to capture, but mostly I'm linking because Campbell Robertson is so damn good. I was halfway through this and thinking, Damn, this is written well. The section on "La Vie Boheme" is near brilliant. So I scrolled up and - not even expecting it because, hello, he's in Iraq right now - it's by Campbell Robertson. Even in the City section and in Iraq (!) (?) he's still far and away the best theatre writer at the Times.
