All's Diverse Anyway
I'd be surprised these days if many places with the relatively sparse population of the North Coast has even three publications publishing theatre reviews. We have more than that sometimes, but this week it's a three-way diversity of opinion on the North Coast Rep production of All's Well That Ends Well. Contrary to my experience (as described below and in the NC Journal), Melody Stone in the Eureka Reporter got over her initial dissonance to accept the trailer park world. In the Eureka Times Standard's Northern Lights, Betti Trauth came down somewhere between Stone and me, calling the production "innovative but uneven." Pretty cool.
