A Wall Street Journal Theater writer, Joanne Kaufmann, caused quite a stir when she admitted she often left shows she wasn’t enjoying at intermission.

The best response, as quoted on deadline.com, came from popular theater blogger, Ken Davenport, who said:

“I’d love to believe that the Broadway Press Agents and Producers will no longer give Ms. Kaufman comps to shows, but that won’t happen…We’re not going to stop giving you tickets, Ms. Kaufman. We’re on the other side of an abusive relationship. You insult us, neglect us, and then you brag about it. But we’ll still invite you to our bed.”
