Brown seems not to understand that Tempest is not the hero of the story; Joshua Angel is. He's the one who goes on a journey, learns, changes. Tempest is the device that brings this jounrey and these changes about. Brown can complain about Tempest being too passive a protagonist, but maybe that's because he's not the protagonist. C'mon, Dennis stop trying to impress us that you read the novel and say something intelligent about the show and production! Brown compalins that there's too much dialogue instead of action. But if he were paying attention, he'd know the action of the play is largely interior and it happens INSIDE the dialouge, just like anything written by Miller, Albee, Stoppard, Williams, et al. And again, if he were tuned in at all to what Mosley was saying, Brown would understand that the use of the N-word is DESIGNED to send a chill through the audience, for all the right reasons. It's not a stunt; it's REAL. And that's why it's chilling.
