Thank you for your insights. I, too, read program notes, but I didn't find these necessary to repeat in a review for which a limited amount of space is allotted. Russell's empathy for women and his ability to write in their voices is reason for praise, I agree, but I also didn't feel the need to point out this out to enjoy the play. I meant no slight by using the word "slight," but wanted to point out that in other hands that might well be the result. Perhaps I wasn't clear or precise enough in the use of language this time around -- I always strive to try harder next time, and appreciate those readers who want to keep the writers on their toes. Thanks again.
Jim, Aren't the next lines in that song as follows?
"With your hands on your head
or the trigger of your gun"
So I am wondering how the Rialto is gonna come.
Argh, I hate my own typos almost as much as I hate it when fans of a certain artist have to prove they know so much more about that particular musician than everyone else does and were into that musician before anyone else was and generally love that artist more than anyone does.
The reader's comments, IMHO, constitute a particularly toxic form of chauvinism that ruins what should be a beautiful thing: the shared love of music.
I probably should've stayed out of it.
Jeez, I guess, I he proved he's a bigger Bruce Cockburn fan than you, Stephen!
