The Old Heave-ho

October 20, 1985

Regarding Dan Sullivan's review of "Jeeves Takes Charge," a tour de force by Edward Duke from the work of P.G. Wodehouse (" 'Jeeves': Not Quite in Full Charge," Sept. 21):

Bertie Wooster would say that "what the world needs is fewer and better drama critics since many of them are fat-headed chumps who consist of nothing but muscle from the neck up and are always talking through the backs of their heads."

I don't know what Sullivan's problem is. Perhaps, like Bertie's Aunt Agatha, he wears barbed wire next to the skin and that causes him to be irritable and petty. Or perhaps, as Lord Emsworth would say, "He's just not very sound on theatre."
