Theatre critic being inconsistent?
It is with growing concern that I have been reading the published work from The Guardian’s so-called theatre critic, Colm Magner. His reviews have been inconsistent, unbalanced and incomplete.
If there are any valid points within them, they are swept aside by a barrage of biased judgments and personal attacks directed toward the genuine theatre professionals who stage the shows he is reviewing.
He recently chastised an opening night audience for reacting to this show in a manner which he deemed much more enthusiastic than the show merited.
Far be it from me to suppress the expression of anyone’s opinion.
However, it would be much more appropriate for Mr. Magner to share his with the poor unfortunate in the barstool beside him than in the pages of the Guardian. Judi Allen,
