Alvin Epstein

A must-read this week, if you haven't seen it already: Michael Feingold's profile of veteran actor Alvin Epstein, in this week's Village Voice.

A promotion of Epstein's brief run downtown at LaMama as King Lear, in an already much praised performance. A must-see.

UPDATE: NYTimes.com now features an "audio slide show" where you can listen to a little of Epstein as Lear.

Had the pleasure of seeing this King Lear here in Boston. So much of my memory is tied up in the space -- would love to see the NYC version, but unlikely I get down there. Highly recommend it, however!
