Reviewer Richard Scheinin returned to Anna Karenina for the closing performance, with the other cast. He appears to have been a wee bit encouraged by this second viewing and hearing. He still isn’t enthralled. But still, it’s better.

I would love it if a reviewer could sit in on much more. In some ways it would be cool, in fact, if they could play their instrument (assuming they were musicians before reviewers) a few times during rehearsals … I think it helps a person understand the work.

… and speaking of reviewers being musicians. I was charmed by the fact that Anthony Tommasini, a reviewer for the New York Times, is willing to play piano publicly … he knows how reviewers can be! 🙂
