I finished Marshall W. Mason’s mammoth memoir about the Circle Repertory Theater Company. I referenced here when I started it Transcendent Years.
Not the least of the book’s pleasures is listing of lesser known plays either produced by the Circle Rep, or plays by playwrights who became a big deal after their time with the Off-Broadway company.
Some plays I want to read:
- Knock, Knock by Jules Feiffer
- The Disintegration of James Cherry by Jeff Wanshel
- The Lesson of the Master by Richard Howard
- Three Hotels by Jon Robin Baitz
I couldn’t leave the book without another quote by playwright Lanford Wilson. From his play Serenading Louie:
“I don’t actually think…that I loved him then. But I love him then now.”
Thank you Mr. Mason. I learned a lot.
