Farewell to a great Broadway critic.

Michael Kuchwara was one of my favorite critics.

According to Merriam-Webster, one of the primary definitions of “criticize” is “to find fault with: point out the faults of.”

What was amazing about Mike was that he was able to adhere to that definition, yet his reviews still radiated with his love for the theater.  I don’t know how he did it, but even when he hated something, his reviews still sprung from an incredibly positive place.

Michael’s curtain fell way too prematurely this past weekend, when he passed away at the age of 63.

The industry has lost a lot more than a critic.  The industry just lost one of its dearest friends and supporters.

You’ll be missed, Mike.
