My father is a theatre critic and he has been in this work for a long while. He has grown quite the reputation over the years and people do trust that his reviews are fair and accurate. Well, sometimes I think he has been doing this work for too long. Sometimes I feel that he doesn’t even know how to enjoy the plays like he did when he was younger. It used to be all about the performance and the ability of the actors and actresses to play off one another. I feel that these days, it’s more so the HVAC settings in the theatre that makes him judge if he enjoys the play or not. I don’t think that’s really fair because the climate control settings have nothing to do with the actors or actresses. Admittedly, people wouldn’t want to go to a theatre that has uncomfortable temperature control settings though. The thing is, I don’t think he even knows what is comfortable. He can be entirely freezing at one moment and then feel overheated the next. This is actually why I bought a smart thermostat for my house because he never appreciates the temperature control settings no matter what they are set to. The smart thermostat allows me to adjust the temperature control settings on a whim. This is why I feel bad for the people who he reviews these days because he’s so negative all the time. I think people are starting to lose faith in his reviews, but it’s probably time for him to retire to be honest. It’s something I have considered getting into myself as I also enjoy the theatre, but I’d rather be performing than being the one who judges. I don’t want to wind up like my father.
