Yes, I am sorry. This post is a recycled piece of writing - just a short review that was published in a local magazine.
It's isn't a great piece of writing but I'm using it here to demonstrate how diplomatic a reviewer must be.
The show I reviewed wasn't the greatest piece of entertainment. But the audience was full of fans and I almost felt that it didn't matter what the performer did - they loved him just for being there.
But I didn't go as a fan, I went to review it.
I mention in my review that the performance was affected by fluffed lines and technical difficulties. I had to include that reference because it happened more than once.
It wouldn't have been an honest review if I showered the show with praise. I hope the performer's fans agree!
