Madam, how like you this play?

Lately, whenever anyone asks me this question, my answer tends to be, “Not much.”
I’m starting to fear that I will never like anything again. While all around me, people enthuse about what they’re watching, I look around wondering what I’m missing. Or wondering how I could fix whatever it is I’m watching.
What would please me?
What could be done to that play, that production, that performance to move me?
I usually have ideas. But I can’t do much about them in my current situation. I can only fix the plays that are before me.
But even, of course, my own work needs fixing. It needs enormous amounts of fixing. And probably other people watch it and wonder how they’d fix it.
