Reviewing
Former A.R.T.
Artistic director
New Republic critic
Playing both sides
The now 88
Robert Brustein
Arts Fuse editor
Bill Marx
Reviewed his new play
Exposed
After Tartuffe
Riff on Moliere
A geriatric sit-com
Mildly amusing entertainment
There are issues
The contentious
Brustein always
In the thick of it
Polemics
Friends and enemies
Epic battles with
August Wilson
Among others
Produced avant-garde
Plays for A.R.T.
We were seasoned
Subscribers
Opening night series
He introduced
Often more enticing
Than the actual plays
Some were brilliant
Risk Taking
Absolutely stunning
King Stag
Pirandello
Phaedre
Most just so so
Each season
Without fail
An utter dog
Insult to audiences
We lost it over
Peter Pan and Wendy
A ridiculous
Holiday show
For kids of all ages
Don't be fooled again
Bow wow
That was it
We quit
But Brustein
Still going
Marx
