Bullets over Broadway

Friday 20 April 2007

If you enjoyed our recent forensic examination of the selective use of critics’ reviews by the National Theatre, then be sure to check out the fabulous new brouhaha which has broken out on Broadway.

Producer Scott Rudin has been using quotes from user reviews carried by the New York Times website and attributing them to the New York Times itself.This has understandably caused the NYT to get very huffy but Rudin makes some good points by way of riposte which do make you think the NYT rather wants to have its cake and eat it too – . Check out this account (incredibly, in the NYT itself) in the New York Post of the mud-flinging.

Marvellous stuff. Thanks to Mark Shenton for the spotting it.

  1. Thanks for the link, guys.

    Incidentally, the account of the furore appeared in the New York Post, not the NYT.


  2. Oops. You’re right. Mea Culpa.

    That’s what you get for trying to blog and work at the same time.

    Thank goodness there’s a professional in the house.

    Thanks, Scott.
