Why actors hate critics. Sam Waterston’s daughters, Elisabeth and Katherine, have parts in CSC’s The Cherry Orchard, which caused the guy sitting next to me, as he flipped through his program before the play began to observe to his companion:
It wasn’t just the words. It was his tone of having been personally offended by Waterston’s decision to do Lear, as if he’d asked for and then ignored this guy’s advice. Apparently the guy is a working drama critic. The blonde has permission to shoot me if I start talking like this.
