Sir — As a playgoer of forty years standing, may I say that I heartily agree with Peter Pinnell in his condemnation of Entertaining Mr. Sloane.
I myself was nauseated by this endless parade of mental and physical perversion. And to be told that such a disgusting piece of filth now passes for humor!
Today’s young playwrights take it upon themselves to flaunt their contempt for ordinary decent people. I hope that the ordinary decent people of this country will shortly strike back!

“My family and I were extremely offended by the “musical act” of Adam Lambert on the ABC broadcast of the AMA’s on Sunday, November 22, 2009. The imitation of oral sex with men and women during the performance was obscene, disgusting and uncalled for. The entire show pushed the limits of good taste, especially since this program was billed as a “family show.” There was nothing “family” about it.”
“Please note that we watched ABC American Music Awards and I could not beleive what I had to watch with my 11, 13, and 16 year old. We had to send my son to bed who actually opted to goto bed because he was disturbed, my 16 year old who was disgusted, and my 13 year old who really does not like Adam Lambert. This was not tasteful watching another man go down on him, macking out with a person who was either a man or a woman, touching the croutch, um 50 cent contenstly being bleeped out, omg R U KIDDING this was not good. I cannot beleive that they are not going to be fined for this behavior. I am not a fan of Howard Stern but this was crossing the line and I will not watch this event again. i cannot believe that this was on national televeicion that this was on ABC and not MTV. You should be imbarrassed that you control this tv. Enough is enough. Where did the television standards go. Guess what there is none. Please make this stop and go back to better family standards. Cause this had NONE.”
“ABC/AMA promoted “an unbelievable performance” by Adam Lambert the entire duration of the show, they were right on. I can’t believe what was broadcast. In my opinion, it makes the Janet Jackson wardrobe incident trivial. During the coarse of Lambert’s performance he staged having oral sex performed on him by a male dancer/extra, and played with a ring or something between a womans legs. The performance promoted excessive sexuality with a touch of s&m. Their were children at that show, how many children saw that on tv! I am just shocked and dishearten by the broadcast.”
“Adam Lamberts performance was indecent, simulated oral sex on stage is outrageous, this was a Vegas, Burlesque performance that was inappropriate. Please investigate and fine ABC. I am actually a big fan of Adam Lambert, again the choreagraphy was inappropriate”
“I want to join the ranks of the millions who are filing complaints against ABC for the Adam Lambert “performance” (if one could call it that) during the AMA awards tonight. What I witnessed (particularly where he groped a woman’s crotch, and also where a man simulated oral sex with him) was completely inappropriate. Someone should have warned the public in advance that this performance would be inappropriate for younger viewers. Many of us feel assaulted. I hope you will join us in taking action. Thank you.”
“I would like to lodge a complaint against Adam Lamberts performance on the ABC’s American Music Awards show that aired during prime time tonight. His performance was way past what should be seen on tv. Gay sex acts were simulated, along with sticking his fingers in the crotch of one of his female dancers. His whole performance belonged in some S&M sex show, not on prime time TV. I had to remove my daughter from the room it was so shocking. Enough of this, where are our morals going to.”
Hedwig knows, dear.
