Subject: All's Well in Central Park
Rush to New York to see the Richard Jones production of ALL'S WELL THAT ENDS
WELL. It is a delight, pleasures leaping out from all dimensions of theatrical
imagination. Saw it last night and have spent the intervening time weaving
ideas about theatricalizing these scripts for my own forthcoming fall
production of TWELFTH NIGHT. Magic and healing, music and transformations and
meta-theatrical laughter and a door that opens out into eternity . . . AND the
woman who play s Diana was my student at City College, and my daughter works at
the scene shop that produced the set.
The ticket regime is to stand on line with a picnic blanket all afternoon.
Or you can come at 6 or 7pm for a shorter line if some were not given out, or
if the ticket-holders don't show up. Earlier in the season it is also possible
to send in a contribution in return for tickets -- I don't know if that still
This one will glow in your mind happily for decades.
