coming soon...

Some surprisingly brave British drama for Broadway announced recently by optimistic producers. Yes, you may say, it's hardly brave to go Brit these days, but consider these titles:

The Homecoming. Pintermania may be here to stay for a while, it seems. And that's a good thing, no? Let's just hope the Glengarry team producing it doesn't cave to glitz again.

Journey's End. You may have read my rave of this play as seen at the Shaw Fesitival in Ontario last summer. Well now the London revival which sparked all the re-interest, may be coming our way. I suspect this trench drama's intensely detailed and moving portrait of disillusioned army officers will still have resonance in 2006 America.
