    Subject: Well, that seems silly to me...
    Date: Aug 27, 2001
    Sender: Mike DaiseyPrevious | Next

    "you're not a critic nor are you a regular audience, you're a fellow actor who also presents a solopiece at fringe, the least thing you could do is respect the work of other actors."

    This is patently inane. What is this, a Girl Scout troupe? I had no idea one has to register as a critic to speak their mind.

    Further, I'm not in a union--I don't suffer fools gladly, and if I can take the heat for saying something is very indulgent and bad and putting my name on it then so be it. The idea that I should be silent when I see crap happening is wrongheaded--what you are seeking is social politeness, which is sometimes appropriate but I was moved by a terrible, narcissistic performance and a review I felt does not reflect the reality of the piece I saw.

    I would be just as vocal if a fantastic piece received an atrocious review.

    Mike Daisey shame on you

    I saw the show and I liked it, but I can understand that people don't want to see the fall of a junkie. But I want to ad a thing to Mike Daisey's comment: you're not a critic nor are you a regular audience, you're a fellow actor who also presents a solopiece at fringe, the least thing you could do is respect the work of other actors.
    Mike Daisey shame on you!
