Beneatha: An end to misery! To stupidity!  Don’t you see there isn’t any real progress, Asagai, there is only one large circle that we march in, around and around, each of us with our own little picture in front of us — our own little mirage that we think is the future. Asagai: That is [...]

In August, 1972, Dan Alon flew with joyful anticipation to Munich and the fulfillment of a dream he had inherited from his father, that of fencing in an Olympic Games.

Daniel Scott Fine has always been a rebel. A consummate theater person, no one has a better sense of staging, better feel for design, better awareness of light; yet he railed against the theater, proclaimed it static, powerless. He forever demanded that the theater stretch its limits, that it encompass a wider range of realities [...]

It’s a television adaptation of a Broadway production adapting the life of the icon of adaptation herself, Ms. Marilyn Monroe. It [...]

Adapting Russell Banks

Reading Lost Memory of Skin, I am astounded once again by Russell Banks’ ability to adapt his writing to create character, time, place.  His voice changes for each protagonist he creates, and in the way a chameleon-like actor slips into the skin of a character, Banks burrows into the brains of his. In Lost Memory [...]

It was my niece who made me think about Catcher in the Rye this morning… I read a FB entry she’d posted about the Hunger Games and was very excited.  ”HUNGER GAMES (sic) . . . Soo BAD,” it read.  Great!  Something out of the ordinary to say about a pop culture phenomenon and, not [...]

Girl with the Dragoon Tattoo reads in places more like a screenplay than a novel.  Replete with product placement (there are no fewer than twenty mentions of the two heroes’ Macintosh I-Books alone), the book seems to have been crafted so that not only would there be a film version but it would absolutely be [...]
