Geoff Edgers of the Boston Globe was interested in Gawker's assessments, but finds out that Mr. Lawson, really didn't have that much of a leg to stand on:
I asked Lawson, via e-mail, how he developed his anti-crush on the ART. Though several exchanges, it became clear he actually didn't know all that much about the company. For example, he saw a play at the ART when he was 14 and "that made me want to do theatre, which I ended up majoring in at Boston College."
A few more e-mails, a bit more detail.
Lawson's parents, he said, do have season tickets to the ART. But
he had only seen one show there in the last two years, "bobrauschenbergamerica," and that one wasn't the ART's. (Anne Bogart's SITI Company presented the play.)
