    What happened? Did Lindsay-Abaire steal your girlfriend?

    Explain how the fact (if it is a fact) that you knew him in high school makes you an authority on his writing.

    "Fuddy Meers" is one of the funniest plays I've ever seen. I particularly like your use of the phrase "not avery good play, alas." And you're criticizing HIS writing...

    "Wonder of the World" (also capitalized as a title, you illiterate) is a show I directed last year. It was one of the high points of my career. LOVED that show.

    As soon as I can get my hands on "Kimberly (not KIBERLY, genius) Akimbo," I want to direct that, too.

    Lindsay-Abaire is a fine comic writer.

    abaire's a charlatan

    i went to school with this guy and i have to tell you, he's NOT a very good writer, and he's very overpraised for fuddy meers -- it's a fine play, a cute play but not avery GOOD play, alas. wonder of the world was a bit worse and with KIBERLY david has hit a new low -- it's an ugly meanspirited piece of theatre, badly produced by the notoriously nasty and cruel petrarca, you can't make a silk prse, as they say...
