"The One and Only Groucho," wonderful hour-long documentary on the bon-mot hurling anarchist of comedy. What a world to delve into as we rehearse the stage adaptation of Animal Crackers.

"Poe Pourri" (part 1 of 3) — Beetlejuice takes on a certain prophetic and portentous fowl. And a darkly mordant poet, mourning his lost Lenore. You get the picture.

As Enemy of the People finishes 1st weekend, so great that audiences are responding strongly to these (among others) divergent and sometimes competing strains in national discourse and cultural aspiration, as highlighted in the play and our efforts to frame the conversation.

Men have called me mad; but the question is not yet settled, whether madness is or is not the loftiest intelligence– whether much that is glorious– whether all that is profound– does not spring from disease of thought– from moods of mind exalted at the expense of the general intellect. ~Edgar Allan Poe, “Eleonora”
