I don't often write reviews of plays I haven't liked. Such writing only gets the author hated by all the people who Did like a show --- and I speak from years of experience of seeing plays and then reading about them. I've stuck a lot of pins in "reviewer-dolls" in the past, sometimes in after-show conversation, sometimes in print. I see no sense in joining the crew who get their jollies by shooting fish that can't get away and can't ever fight back. I don't enjoy hating theater. I prefer to forget shows that didn't appeal to me --- though perhaps some thought about why I wasn't impressed might prove useful. So here are a few that had excellent productions by excellent designers and performers but nonetheless find themselves in my "forget-ory"; Maybe it's just me, but I wonder why?
