In writing this review, of Crowded Fire's West Coast premiere of Christina Anderson's Good Goods, I worried I went on too long talking about timelessness. By paragraph four, I was tempted to throw in a "if you'll bear with me." But if it seems a little contrived or college English paper-y, I really enjoyed structuring the review this way. It was a refreshing change of pace, and I felt like it gave me a way to make the criticism go both broader and deeper.
