Bitter review misses point
In response to Colm Magner’s review: Bitter? Better believe it.
I have one word for Colm Magner and that would be, “woosh.” Unfortunately, I don’t’ think he would be able to hear it with his head buried in the sand.
How does one get paid to critique a performance, but completely miss the point of a show? How do you walk into a musical comedy called Bitter Girl, and expect to critique it on the same scale as Hamlet?
The way Colm talks about the lack of experience and cathartic moments in the show really makes me question this man’s ability to read a room.
Every table I looked at during opening night had people laughing with tears and nodding at the relatability of it all.
Is it not cathartic to be around a group of people and realize you aren’t the only one who has been through the ups and downs of a relationship?
Is it not liberating to see someone on stage express the crazy thoughts you indulged during emotional turmoil?
I agree with Colm on one thing and that’s the duty of the Confederation Centre to entertain and as we all saw last year in regards to the sell out hit Mamma Mia. Colm just doesn’t get entertainment. Jordan Flemming, Charlottetown
