For the play, I remember, pleased not the million;

It is a constant mystery to me that quality is not always recognized or taken up, that good works are not embraced by the masses. How is it that shows like Real Housewives prevail while shows like The Hour or Firefly or Arrested Development get cancelled for lack of viewers? I don’t understand.

It happens so often, I am often confused when things of quality actually succeed. I fully expected Nashville to get cancelled after a season. I never expected Brief Encounter to run on Broadway. War Horse ran about 5 more years than I thought it would. But Mamma Mia! is still running. And one of the most brilliant musicals I’ve ever heard has yet to be produced.
