‘Book of Mormon’ profitable and Variety is unreadable

Good for Parker and Stone and their musical getting to profitability, which is a nice story, but the reason I’m calling this out is the writing in Variety. I’ve read articles in Variety before and never noticed it. Is it always this bad? Also, South Park fans, you’re not part of the ‘legit world’ apparently…

Musical’s sales are powered not only by the international popularity of Parker and Stone’s ‘South Park’ the Comedy Central skein that’s amassed a huge fanbase over 15 seasons, but also by the enthusiastic response of the legit world. Tuner won critical raves when it opened and then in June took home nine Tonys, including the new musical laurel, the one theater kudo generally believed to have a real impact on box office.

Complaining about a periodical’s writing style? Who am I?

  1. The article is using theater speak.
    Skein is a tv show
    Tuner is a musical where the songs cause the action to stop.
    An operetta is a musical where the songs are part of the story, and an opera is one where the entire story is told in song.
