The Anonymous Critic

A person could get a real complex.

Tonight I met a woman I haven't seen in years who said that she occasionally sees letters that I write to the editor.

"Do you do any other writing?" she asked.

"Well--just the theatre reviews," I said.

"Oh--do you write reviews?" she asked. "I guess I've seen your name a couple of times."

I've been the theatre critic for the newspaper for five bloody years!!!. The first three years I shared the job with another critic, but for the last two years, I've been the ONLY theatre critic. And she "thinks she's seen my name a couple of times."

I often review three shows a week!

I guess it shows that I have a warped view of the number of people in this town who are interested in theatre!
