Stuff Still Happening

Am I the only one sensing a trend in staged readings of "Stuff Happens" all over the place? Remember, it first appeared in NYC as a reading (at New York Theatre Workshop) while it was waiting for a full production commitment here. Note the Public resurrected it as a reading last week, at the Delacorte. (Anyone know how that went?)

Now I read of a little event at a Cape Cod company, featuring some names of note. And I think I've heard of at least one other?

Whatever the play's merits as truly great political theatre, it will be interesting to see if it becomes an effective device this election season to put up quick and cheap presentations of the play to rally the faithful.
