When Noise Triumphs over Signal
It would appear that just about everyone was asleep at the switch over at SF Weekly when it came to reviewing the final installation of Tom Stoppard's trilogy The Coast of Utopia. The review by Lou Francher consistently calls the play Savage (which even appears in the headline). The title of the play, however, is Salvage, which follows nicely from the two plays that precede it: Voyage and Shipwreck. After seeing this, I felt obliged to check out the Shotgun Players' Web page out of fear that the printed programs for the performances got it wrong, too! Fortunately, they spelled the title of the play correctly. So what we have from SF Weekly is just a reminder that you get what you pay for!
