Well, it would seem that being a theatre critic is a job not without its hazards. I wrote a review last month for a one-woman show called Big Purple Undies, and it would now seem that the Big Purple Undies Brigade is not happy! The show, written and performed by Lou Kelamn, is a particular hit with the Red Hat Society ladies. I’ve had to moderate my comments (sorry regular readers) because some of these society ladies have turned. Yes, lock your doors people, they’ve turned malicious! One ‘lady’ left a comment that just read – Loser! – and not once mind, but several times!
The fact that this review is almost a month old and the comments are just now coming out has something to do with (as one of my malicious lingerers so kindly pointed out to me) the fact that these ladies were incited to revolt by Kelman’s own newsletter. Oh dear. Oh deary deary me.
The power of the critic! I did let two juicy comments through though. Why not? It’s fun, right? Check it out.
Oh, and here’s the review that caused all the ruckus, if you’re interested.
