The bearded man-witch doth protest too much

Written for The Collective Review, 15 June 2009

Followers of my Twitter stream may already know my views on responding to criticism.  It’s a debate most recently revived by Dame Judi Dench and Maureen Lipman, and this week I found myself on the receiving end.

A few weeks ago, I reviewed a production of Macbeth by Love&Madness at Riverside Studios for the British Theatre Guide.  One member of the ensemble, actor/composer Arran Glass, took exception to my criticism and responded in musical form (warning:  the song contains very strong language).

The song, simply titled Matt Boothman, had been online for a week before my internet spies pointed it out to me, so naturally I rushed to respond as promptly as possible.  Play the video above to hear my beat poem, Methinks the Bearded Man-Witch, written and performed by myself, and produced by Richard Stratton.
