Jack Helbig--

[Re: review of You Can't Take It With You, Section Two, October 31]

Beautiful! Right on the head! What the hell's wrong with the so-called pros of the theater? Don't they know this is the 90s? How in the hell can we relate to anything written in ancient times--1936?!

Christ, gimme a break--even a suit knows that everything scribbled by a black is beautiful; a Hispanic, heavenly; an Asian, adorable; and a gay--well God, that's gotta be glorious.

Rent, Angels in America--can it get any better?

I know some genius out there is working on "Holocaust," the musical.

Can't wait for your review.
