I bumped into Greer Grimsley at 7-11 downtown yesterday. Greer is singing Mephistopheles in SDO's production of Faust.
I asked him if he ever reads reviews.
He said he waits until a show is over and then reads the reviews because they can be insightful. They can also be distracting which is why he waits.
I mentioned being irked at one, specific, San Diego reviewer who seems to have no grasp of the art form of opera.
Greer wasn't surprised. "Oh that's everywhere."
