An Opinion Piece By Spencer Stewart. Mr. Stewart has objected to many aspects of our review of Miami Theater Center’s production of The Seven Year Itch and has views about the value of criticism in general. We felt that the in our commitment to dialogue, we should publish with his permission his thoughts verbatim
We want theaters to take chances and Miami Theater Center has bravely invested its artistic vision into classics like Three Sisters. But MTC has missed the target so badly in its misbegotten revival of the 1952 sex comedy The Seven Year Itch that you only thing you want to scratch is your head.
The magic of serendipity: It’s difficult to imagine — without being boxed into it as Miami Theater Company was — how an artistic director would thematically put together a season encompassing Hedda Gabler and The Seven Year Itch.
