So George Hunka put this together for the NY Times a little while ago.
So tell me...what three of these shows are you most looking forward to? A brief explanation is also nice.
1. Heartbreak House - To see what Kyle thinks so highly of in Shaw. I get that the essays are great...but the plays leave me cold. I'm going with an open mind.
2. King Lear - at the Classical Theatre of Harlem. Oh yes. Oh yes.
3. The Coast of Utopia - I will count these as One. Because, well, I can. My list.
Going to have to check out My Name is Rachel Corrie as well. After reading the text, I'll be honest, I'm not as enthusiastic. Certainly stagecraft and acting are missing components for me right now...but the text itself is rather slight. At least, that's my first impression.
How about you? What are you looking forward to this Fall?
