exquisite sentence structure

Heidi Weiss writes

"The first 15 minutes of Charles Newell's Court Theatre production of "Titus Andronicus" are so brilliant -- staged with such a metabolism-altering rhythmic propulsion and ingenious use of space, and with such a mix of sinister magic and emotional instability -- that you might well find yourself hoping this director's next project is a freshly choreographed version of Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring."

Damn! I would want to see that play even if I didn't already know that Tamora eats her kids in a pie. HEY!! There it is!! The segue I needed for the Sweeney Todd story. "You have read the play haven't you??" That is what I asked the cow with who (m?) I almost got in a fist fight. She was trying to preach family values at Isabel. Have I told you this story?? Oh. well it is a good story. anyway--don't argue lit with me okay?? And she should have controlled her "short people" prejudices.

After Sweeny Todd This chick was making rude comments about "five year olds" and "family movies" so I called her out and pointed out tht Iz is nearly ten (not five) and had read the play. It was pretty funny.
