I must say that I have never read a review of any production as savage as Brandon K. Thorp's "Godzilla Does Norway" on October 22. You could have expressed your displeasure in ways less personally hurtful to the actress involved.
The actors dutifully act, and I suspect that, in rehearsal, director Bill Hayes at least tried his hand at directing.
Not enough... to keep petite little Margery Lowe from making Henrik Ibsen her bitch. If A Doll's House is chamber music, Lowe is a walking mosh-pit. If A Doll's House is a knife-fight, Lowe is a bazooka. If A Doll's House is Tokyo, Margery Lowe is Godzilla.
You owe this young lady an apology. Not for your opinions but for the manner in which you decided to express them. She is a human being. Please treat her — and future subjects — as such.
"George Phblat’s new film, ‘Benji Saves the Universe,’ has brought the word ‘BAD’ to new levels of badness. Bad acting. Bad effects. Bad everything.

She bravely and skillfully inhabits Henrik Ibsen's flawed heroine...- Bill Hirschman, The Sun-Sentinel
Margery Lowe's radiant Nora is like the high sustained vibrato note of a violin rising above the orchestra of a strong supporting cast...- Jan Sjostrom, The Palm Beach Daily News
So as long as we get a variety of reviewers, we can draw our own conclusions about whether or not we'll try to get out to see a particular play, even if some of the reviewers go little over the top.
