|Chiaramonte assumes the play was a failure and claims that it|
did not inform its audience of the dangers of climate change
While the musical failed, it presented a message to an audience that may not have been fully aware of climate change. One review by New York Times writer Charles Isherwood, ignored by Chiaramonte, says that the musical presents issues that "plant a black seed of knowledge about our imperiled planet." While the review is negative regarding the performance and writing of the musical, it recognizes the musical's goals and conveys that the presentation of the issues made a difference.
Chiaramonte only took from the negative portions of reviews. While many critiques slam both the company for its performance and the directors for its writing, they praise the musical for its message. In a balanced article, the journalist must respect that fact. Although the musical failed in its deadline and quality, it had an impact. However, Chiaramonte does not concede this. He does not delve into the 5% of the intended audience to whom the musical impacted. To those who created the musical, as long as they taught 5% of their audience about the dangerous effects of climate change and how to help prevent global warming, then they have succeeded.
