Correction and a comment regarding the Children's Hour review

First, the correction: we deleted the line "It’s only been in the last 20 to 30 years that women have stopped wearing hosiery. In 1961 it seems unlikely that women of the class depicted in this play would all be bare legged." It has been brought to our attention that the women were wearing nylons, which is appropriate for the period. We apologize for the error.

It has also come to our attention that Brad Quinn, our reviewer for The Children's Hour, auditioned for the play and was not cast. We did not inform the reviewer ahead of time that it is the policy of this blog to not allow people who have auditioned for a play to then review the play. We are not stating that Mr. Quinn's review is anything other than his objective opinion. However, we strive to remove even the appearance of bias in these reviews and therefore wanted to be forthcoming about this situation. Going forward, we will not allow reviewers who have auditioned for a particular play to review that play.
