Josh Corey reviews The Widow Party

Josh Corey write a few insightful comments about The Widow Party. I love that Josh is/was so troubled by the fact that he felt "pleasure" at watching our "phantasmagoria." I also love how Josh writes that he felt "implicated" but not properly "alienated." This seems absolutely correct; Josh seems to have totally gotten the play despite his anxieties.

The rest of you have one more chance (for now). The play will be performed tonight (Sunday) at 7 pm. Though it has gone so well that there are already plans for further performances and publications.

Yes, there are some squibblets of it up. I'm not sure it will make much sense at all, but I will post them.

I very much like the comments on Corey's blog (clearly I am quite interested in pleasure and excess etc, so these kinds of critiques suit me quite well).

Also, nobody needs to worry: As far as I know, there were no tenured faculty among the many-more-than a handful in the audience! Or among the production crew! Phew! Those scary tenured people sure undermine art!
