Well how about that

According to Ben Brantley, New York Times theatre reviewer, all my friends and I are apparently wrong, wrong, wrong. He thinks that The Homecoming is amazing, riveting, genius, nigh-perfect, even.

And, he can't stop yammering about how wonderful Raul Esparza and Eve Best are in this thing. Frankly, I thought they were the two worst performances on stage.

I stand by my critique and think that Ben Brantley is applauding the production out of fear that he'll be called stupid if he admits that he didn't know what the hell was happening either.

Wow. I still want to see this (when I can get cheap tix), even though I'm almost certain I'll agree with you, Jen, and Josh -- not The Brantley. How can Raul let us down like this? I agree with your theory. Even though he's "no-lon-ger-the-in-gen-ue" he should realize that "defenses are not the way to go." I mean, really. :)

Way to rock the TTB quotes! I love it!

Jen and I got tickets from TDF, so discounts are definitely out there. Please let me know what you think if you see it.
