11 August 2002: Summer 2002, Plays Seen

Albee, Seascape. Hartford Stage, June.

Hampshire Shakespeare Company: Measure for Measure. 10 July.

Seamus Heaney, The Cure at Troy (A version of Sophocles’ Philoctetes). Theatre at Deerfield Academy, directed by Linda McInerney.

New Century Theatre, Northampton (at Smith College): Yasmina Resa, “Art.” Directed by Ed Golden.

Jane Martin, Anton in Show Business. Directed by Courtney Flanagan.

Michael Healey, The Drawer Boy. Directed by Sam Rush.

Oscar Wilde, The Importance of Being Earnest. Directed by Jack Neary.

Also seen: Oliver Parker, film: The Importance of Being Earnest. “Written by Mr. Parker, based on the play by Oscar Wilde.” The New York Times review, by Stephen Holden (5/22/2002) noted the film is rated PG and cautioned that it “has sexual innuendo.” One cannot be too careful these days, evidently, in the context of millions of dollars of damage suits over the conduct of (mostly) pedophile priests. “O tempera! O mores!” Commented the friend who sent me a clipping of the review.)
