In their first theatre-related column since July, the New York Observer printed an article written not by missing critic John Heilpern, but by the dude from Gawker.
Spurred by this, I sent a second e-mail to the Observer that led to some fresh information about our favorite critic: Heilpern is expected to return shortly. Pay no attention to my ominous conjectures in the previous post; Heilpern’s absence isn’t much more than a summer break of sorts.
I’ll be eagerly awaiting his return. In the meantime, I suppose there’s nothing to do but read Village Voice reviews of the Magical Brazilian Dolphin Musical!
