You should be commended for writing such an honest and thoughtful review.  Thank you.  I loved this production and am very disappointed at the other critics.  Is there a way to critique them?  Yes, letters to the editor, which I have been excited to read!

My husband and I will be reading your reviews in the future and NOT the ones in the Star, Tucson Wekkly, or the UA newspaper!  You obviously know theatre and don’t allow other people to influence you in your reviews.

A critic with ethics!  Good for you!
