Bill Marx comes swooping down from his highbrow perch to slash the celebrating Ruby Sunrise.

Middelbrows Unite

I can't comment specifically because I haven't seen or read the play.

I think that highbrow critics such as Marx get a real charge out of thinking of themselves as the last bastion of defense against mediocrity. However, I think he has a point here. The corporate onslaught of popular entertainment faces its last hurdle..."critical acceptance"....before it takes over completely.

His article seems free of political ideology.
