It's unfortunate that Martin Bernheimer was sent to cover composer Philip Glass, playwright David Henry Hwang and designer Jerome Sirlin's "1000 Airplanes on the Roof" ("UCLA Introduces Glass' Science-Fictitious 'Airplanes,' " Nov. 2).
He shouldn't cover an experience that melds multimedia, science-fiction, music and drama, etc.
In his review there's little mention of Hwang, the Los Angeles-New York Chinese-American playwright who received the 1988 Tony Award for best play for "M. Butterfly." Furthermore, there's virtually no critical discussion of the text in Bernheimer's review, let alone the subtext.
I think Calendar owes its readers the service to have another critic revisit the Wadsworth Theatre before the show closes (tonight).
