Political cartoons are supposed to be witty, make a point, and make you think. This "cartoon" does none of that. So this is really grade school journalism that should never have been allowed to appear in a University newspaper. But then we are talking about Arizona...so maybe its considered "hip" by many people in this state. By the way, I live in Tucson. Maybe the LGBT community should just call it what it is--ignorant 6th grade crap, where 12 year olds try to impress each other with "potty humor" to cover their own fears. The cartoonist gets an F and needs to sit in the corner and think about what he did. Don't give this more power than it deserves.
Although Sherilyn Forrester makes some good points regarding the playwrights overriding presence throughout the show and that at times he becomes more important than the story he is trying to tell. However, after seeing a performance last week I felt that the acting and directing were outstanding and gave life and fun to what sometimes feels like an odd course of events. There are continual laughs and the direction is tight and playful. This production pulled everything together for me and turned out to be a far more enjoyable evening than I had ever expected. It's certainly ls not great literature but I'd recommend it for a good night out. -A. David
