“Claudia Cassidy, born in Shawneetown, Illinois, was a music, dance, and drama critic. She was so well known for giving caustic reviews to what she considered bad performances that she earned the nickname ‘Acidy Cassidy’. Her judgment, however, which was regarded as extremely controversial even in her heyday, has been seriously doubted by more recent critics.”
