I just read a review of Wainwright’s opera, Prima Donna (reviews seem to run the gamut) that ends with this:

The tumultuous applause was increased by the appearance of the man himself during the curtain calls. Rufus looked undeniably dapper in his top hat (which proceeded to fall off during one of the bows), pink tail-coat and yellow bow tie accompanied by a silver-topped cane. And jeans – though this simply enhanced rather than spoiled the look – as did his bushy beard. Maybe I’m just blinded by my love for the guy.

Hmmm. I wonder if someone who is willing to write that in a review should really be reviewing? (And yes, the review gushes.)

I’m not all that surprised; the review came from MUSO.
