Worst. Theatre. Review. Ever.

Brutal, vicious review of the Beach Boys show "Good Vibrations" in the Times yesterday.

I've read my share of vicious NY Times reviews (John Simon in NY Magazine was the king of criticizing people's weight, their race, their looks, you name it.)

But this one takes the cake.

Key excerpt:

"...the sum effect is of a lumbering, brainless Frankenstein's monster, stitched together from stolen body parts and stuffed into a wild bikini."


This is not even close to the worst review I've read in the N.Y. Times. Try Frank Rich's review of a little disaster called "Moose Murders" or the hilarious review of the short-lived musical "Carrie".
