    I believe I just shared one of your posts with you. Oh well . . . Just want to say it’s remarkable how often your opinion and mine coincide on plays. Which means if you write about something before I’ve seen it, I’m often tempted to skip going to it. After all, why see it “again” when you’ve probably anticipated my reaction?
    Anyway, happy belated birthday, the new 40th, I believe. (It still seems young to me, if you don’t yet qualify for any discounts.)
