The purpose of this site and the purpose of my affiliation with The Oklahoman is to inform readers, as accurately unbiased as I can, about the performance quality of a production. When a show is not up to par and violates all expectations, I must remember my obligation. My inclination is to be nice. My obligation is to be honest. Brutal honesty is not required, although it is supposed to be more fun. It is not. When the show is not up to reasonable standards of public performance all honesty is brutal and never fun. For anyone. And then the following evening comes a show that exceeds all expectations. Honesty has its own reward.
