    Reader comments on China: The Whole Enchilada

    Just to clarify. No where in my review did I accuse Mark Brown of being a racist. I give him all the props in the world for adopting a little girl from China. My job as a reviewer is to judge the work by its merits or lack thereof, not by how much I approve or disapprove of his personal choices.

    Idiocy

    Obviously you missed the part when they said this show was a "lighthearted look at China". Why are all the other people and reviews raving about it, while you are bashing it? People need to have an open mind and obviously you don't. If you read the program, you would know that Mark Brown was inspired to write this play for his daughter, who was adopted from China. His intention was not to make fun of China & it's 4000 year history. He is not a racist. There are Chinese people who have seen the show who loved it, so instead of being a closeted racist twit, why don't you see the bigger picture.
