His review of Aladdin is very generous. The few negative comments he makes about our production - - and trust me, he could have written SO much more than he did - - are 100% accurate.
And in his review, he is very kind to me, stating...
"Rader, who invariably takes it upon himself to create an entire subtext for the pleasure of the adults in the theater, was in top form Saturday"
Sure, he follows that wonderful compliment with the phrase, "when you could hear him" but that's a body mic problem, not a "Stephen" problem, right?
I mean, I'm not Merman here.
Sure I THINK I'm Merman and I occasionally break into a full voice rendition of "Rose's Turn" when I'm walking down the street, but I still need a microphone, for God's sake!
