Re: “American Idol alum Clay Aiken dazzles in Pittsburgh CLO's Grease

Yep, Clay Aiken won in every way that counts, and he is STILL very well loved.He CAN still pack in an audience with those golden pipes. It says a LOT, that People would come just to hear him sing just ONE song.

Re: “American Idol alum Clay Aiken dazzles in Pittsburgh CLO's Grease

Clay Aiken did win in every way that matters. He was always amazing. So what if the votes weren't all counted.

Re: “We Are Among Us dramatizes 60 years of Afghanistan's tumultuous relationship with the United States

Wasnt a big fan of the set, agreed, but all of these actors were wonderful. For an intense subject, they really held ones attention of the audience for the full 90 minutes. For the audience at the one we attended to give these folks a standing ovation on such an intense performance was remarkable. And that kid wiegand was fantastic. A couple blemishes for sure, but something different that my wife and I loved. Well done city theater, keep on doing different and interesting stuff.

What time is the show? No information on Citypaper Calendar, No information on Glitterbox Facebook page. Chaos indeed.

Re: “Khūrākī serves up food and performances that showcase an Afganistan Americans have never seen

It is more accurate to say that Molly Rice monitored the Afghan women's sewing class.

Re: “In The Heights is nice, but a little too tame for its own good

I kinda think you missed the point of the show. A story about immigrants who like everyone else are trying to achieve the American dream, of having better life for themselves and their children. During this time of anti-immigrant fever I think it's timely and relevant, even if it's too "nice". It's a musical not shock doc on netflix.

Re: “"Happy Ending" & "Day of Absence"

o (it was my honor and privilege to work on both Day of Absence and Happy Ending, by Douglas Turner Ward, as Backstage Sound & Props, at the St. Marks Playhouse, in New York, in 1966...the many truly great black cast members included James Earl Jones, Robert Hooks, and Moses Gunn, among many great, notable talents...I profoundly recommend the studying of Mr Wards works as crucially meaningful to and for the Civil Rights Movement...bless you always) o

Re: “Romeo and Juliet at PICT Classic Theatre

"David Longstreet" -- the only hatchet job on this page is your comment. Feckless "rah-rah" reviews do nothing to improve and evolve the Pittsburgh theater scene. This review is balanced -- citing positive and negative aspects of the show -- as all serious criticism is. You should be appreciative of such thoughtful commentary; however, you are entitled to your opinion, as anti-intellectual and myopic as it may be.

Re: “Equus at Pittsburgh Public Theater

It's called "criticism" Mr. Longstreet. You know, the kind of analytical thinking that goes back to Aristotle's "Poetics." You might try reading it yourself. BTW, go easy on the ellipsis points. . . Makes it look like you've been drinking. ;-)

P.S. And the play by Quantum was called "Red Hills", not "Red Soil."
