DC Metblogs brings you: Career advice

This is a tough distinction, so listen up. If you’re working as a theatre critic it is expected that you will express contempt for much of what you’re sent out to review on an individual basis within reviews. It is not expected, or acceptable, to express contempt for the entire local theatre scene at once as well as your job as a theatre reviewer.

Thus, as Theatreboy reports, we now find ourselves one theatre critic lighter at the Washington Post. So listen up boys and girls: if you don’t like what you’re doing for a living, make it well known. Your bosses will find a way for you not to have to do it anymore.

    Isn’t it interesting that the critic in question says that the offending line in the bio was written a year ago – so it’s been on her site for a while – and it’s only this week that it’s been noticed, and by an anonymous complaint? Could this be a revenge hit for a bad review?

    Thanks for the link – it’s a fascinating story…
