While The Dig gets stuck, The Stranger leaps forward:

Jenna Sherer's caustic, but poorly constructed, rant about fringe theatre is still attracting comments on The Daily Dig .

Meanwhile, Brendan Kiley, writing for Seattle's Stranger, tries to blog a review in real time from a performance of Thom Pain at Seattle Rep. Technically, it was a nightmare, but you can read the aborted project notes.

Would any Boston theatre company, let alone the Huntington or the ART allow an alternative weekly or a blogger to live blog a review from the booth?

That's why Seattle and Chicago are theatre towns, and we are still trying to catch up.

And no, it doesn't mean I neccessarily think it is a good idea. But it is a good experiment.
