New York Times Review for “Diary”

April 5, 2010

Hi, I wanted to share some great news. Our show “The Diary of a Teenage Girl” received last week a great review in the New York Times.  For those of you outside the NY theater scene, let me tell you, this a big deal for a NYC theater production.

A view of the finished set

If your show is not a big budget production, it’s hard enough getting their critics to come see it.  There are literally hundreds of shows and events happening in New York City at any given time.  It’s impossible for anyone to cover them all.  And then, once they do come, it’s a really big deal to get a good review from them.  I actually don’t like that their opinion has so much power.  It’s not fair that one person’s comment can make or break a show, but that’s the way things go in this town.  I guess we always need some kind of yardstick to measure things up against.  And of course, it feels wonderful when the fruit of your work ends up on the positive side of that comparison.

Here’s the link to the NYTimes review.
