Rachel was right - I am being unfair. Not everyone loves Shakespeare. Not everyone loves Cafe Rio.
To clarify, though, my students go through that complaining phase with every tough play we've done - Inherit the Wind, Importance of Being Earnest, even the scenes from Funny Thing we did a few years ago.
I told my students about her comment, though, and more than I expected said they liked the tough stuff (and Annie's Organic Burritos). They were the ones who have taken my Advanced class before - they know the rewards that will come.
They also all liked the fact that my little sister said I wasn't being fair. They did not miss that irony at all.
