Dear editor:

Re the letter in your May 5 issue from Scott Morfee, the producer of Killer Joe: He defends his show against Culture Club columnist Lewis Lazare’s assertion that it got mixed to negative reviews by claiming that the show, which lost money and closed early, was listed in the Chicago Tribune’s “Raves” section for ten weeks.

What Morfee doesn’t address is the obvious question: If the Trib liked it so much, why did the show close?
