I have always found Robert Pela to be the worst theatre critic in my scope of experience and his review of Marat/Sade only proves the point. Why does Mr. Pela feel it is necessary to deride the performances of actors who deserve far better than he ever doles out? Mr. Pela does not one whit of of good for the theatre community at large by lambasting the performances of particular actors on such a consistent basis. Having been a critic and an actor, I can honestly say that I would be embarrassed by publishing such harsh criticisms every week. I do not value his opinion as a critic, since it so frequently varies from my own and since it is consistently cruel. It is just a shame that he seems to be the loudest and most obnoxious voice of theatre in the Valley.
