From today's New York Times Corrections:
Because of an editing error, a passage was omitted yesterday from a theater review of "Kicker," at the Connelly Theater in the East Village. The affected section should have read: "Exploring this theme in a play isn't a bad idea. It's just that Mr. Simonson's characters aren't the least believable, so the play is often less funny than simply embarrassing. In the opening scene, the novelist (James Lloyd Reynolds) acts so smarmy and superficial that no journalist with the slightest bit of experience would fail to see through him. It doesn't help that he and Matt Pepper, the actor who plays the journalist, Michael Gray, deliver their lines as if reading them from the script." (Go to Article)
Jus' so's there's no mistake: We didn't like your play.
