And Then Jason Grote Turned Itself Inside Out: Obies roundup:
So, Village Voice, we've got plenty of love for you, and we hope we can still be friends after our little unseemly, self-serving rant. We need you. We need you as a palliative to the moribund state of our theater institutions, that fabulous invalid who isn't even really that fabulous anymore. We need your smarts and your willingness to take risks. We grew up longing not for an Oscar, not for a Tony, but for an Obie, and we hope we didn't just blog ourselves out of one. And Alexis, it goes without saying that you continue to rock. But we say this in the gentlest, most human way we can muster: c'mon, guys.
