A Firestorm in Chicago!

Hedy Weiss, critic for The Chicago Sun-Times, somehow got the idea in her head to publish a review of Stages 2006, a 3 day workshop of new musicals in Chicago. These are all works in progress using the workshop to help the authors see what works and what doesn’t. They were never meant to be screened for critics since they are still in the early stages of their development.

Not only did she review (and pan) them as if they were the finished product, she did not even have the gall to see the shows in their entirety.

She has now caused a firestorm of fury from The Dramatists Guild of America with a who’s who of playwrights and composers sending letters in to the editors of the Sun-Times.

See what the buzz is about here…
