In what has to be one of the most tasteless sentences of his apparently endless career, John Simon had this to say: "Written (if that is the word for it) by Wallace Shawn, one of the worst and unsightliest actors in this city, Marie and Bruce is the kind of play that, if either our drama critics or our garbage collectors did their work properly, could not have survived one night at the Public Theater." Simon's boorishness is insight-free, certainly, but it demonstrates what a tough row Shawn has had to hoe as a playwright confronted by virulent and aggressive critical disapprobation.
