EXCELLENT REVIEW -- I write Theatre/Show reviews for local papers and EBERT has done a terrif job of laying out the Goods & Bads and giving the reader an adult's basket of pluses and minuses to support their making a wise personal-taste-tailored selection.
I try to take this approach in WILD Madcap Farces for example -- where some people will laugh their asses off and say they never had a better time at the theatre in their lives, while others will say it was the most boring, juvinile dumb-&-dumber bunch of shenanigans they ever had to sit thru. -- Just describe the gentre and whether it was well down for that given genre and let the ticket-buyer decide.
I absolutely would RUN to the Box Office if I liked gore(I don't) and especially if I also liked a tongue-in-cheek darkest comedy take, like smile while you're stapling victims and tapdance as you bring in the gasoline for the psyho bar-b-que.
'Vomitorium' is actually a real word. The tunnel entryways from a lobby into a theatre's or stadium's stage area are called vomitoria.
Theatrical lore has it that nervous actors would run out, vomit, come back--and on with the show. But Dictionary.com explains: "in a theater or stadium, esp. ancient, a passageway leading to and from the seating; from Latin vomitorius, alluding to the path's discharging of the spectators"
