Thus the headline on John Moore’s 2006 Denver Post story on the dust up between Cleveland Plain Dealer critic Tony Brown and Cleveland Play House artistic director Michael Bloom, occasioned by the former’s review of “Rabbit Hole.” Moore writes, “The relationship between a theater critic and the community he serves is far more precarious than it is for TV, film and music critics because nothing is more local than theater. That makes what any critic has to say about it far more personal.” Read Moore’s column here.
