Letters to CurtainUp --2014
The form of "Vichy" might be more talk than drama, but the situation in which the characters find themselves, waiting to be summoned to their fates, provides its own, very potent, drama. November 19, 2015. I hope you're wrong that plays like Steve and Dada Woof Papa Hot are precursors of a run of plays about contemporary gays. Maybe there's a place for more if the playwrights can stop navel gazing and looking only at their narrow geographic and economic world.— Stanley Feldman, who's gay but not rich, and living in the outer boroughs.
November 18, 2015. You were kind to accept the tongue-in-cheek comic treatment of Misery. But I think most people do want the missing chills to warrant the high priced tickets. Maybe I'm not enthusiastic because I'm not a Bruce Willis fan.— Angela Kastella.
November 18, 2015. I agree that Steven Karam's Sons of the Prophets is a better play than The Humans-- and am not sure how The Humans will do on Broadway. Still, it's one of the more challenging and interesting looks at characters who represent the real America.— Jack Schrafft.
November 18, 2015. I agree with your review of Incident at Vichy-- it's a fine production, well acted and, sadly, very timely. Which is true for all of Miller's plays and makes it hold up even with some of the questionable choices Ivo Van hove makes in his A View From the Bridge. We can't wait for your review of that one.— Betty and Paul Norwood, Chicagoans in NY.
November 12, 2015. Incident at Vichy is polemical but Arthur Miller in this, as in all his plays, is using the theater to make us face important and enduringly meaningful moral questions. I'll settle for a little preaching any time before some of the superficial, trendy productions on the boards. — Maggie Cooperman, Yorktown Heights
