Thank you, RLewis. This argument is on of my pet peeves. Are you trying to imply, Ken, that a playwright should aim to balance the intellectual level of its audience? The show you might be discussing could have just not been very well written. But it is foolish and naive to say that your audience must "get it". How would a show like "Waiting for Godot?", for example, be received by someone who has never been to a theatre before? Would you say that Theatre of the Absurd was sitting on its audience shoulder? The truth is that there are better playwrights than others. And the best ones can take the risk to be more ambitious with their approach. I'm grateful they don't all create for the Jersey Shore generation to "get it" or we'd be in serious trouble.
