I enjoy and count on “Stage Matters.” But I’m afraid William Kowinski shows understandable ignorance of growing up in the Deep South when he says the part of Chick Boyle was overplayed (“Stage Matters,” Oct. 22, on the Ferndale Rep’s production of Crimes of the Heart).
Having grown up in the South, I was brought back to memories by Gloria Montgomery’s performance. Her saccharine sweetness and cloaked rapier thrusts were great. I want to commend the actors on their accents, which were completely believable.
Thank you and thank you for your column.
