Oh, New York... You're So Cute When You Condescend

I was listening to the radio this morning and they were chatting about some of the fine work up on the Chicago stages these days. They got to discussing a particular review in The New York Times of the Goodman Theatre's Desire Under the Elms, which I'm going to see in a few weeks.

Mary Dixon (who, seriously, I love; she's wry and warm and a perfect counterpart to Lin Brehmer) pulls out this quote from the review:

...courtesy of two of today’s foremost young stage actors, Carla Gugino and Pablo Schreiber, whose performances here transcend by some measure even the excellent work they have done in New York

Hee. They can still act... and they're NOT IN NEW YORK!

Anyhoo, I'm really looking forward to this play.
