Short Takes

By Dr. Cashmere

--American Buffalo with John Leguizamo and Cedric the Entertainer has bumped Speed-the-Plow out of the Belasco. So much Mamet, so little space. (Speed-the-Plow is moving to the Barrymore.)

--Isaac has a thoughtful post up about working with playwrights. Nice to see him recoil from the suggestion that writers who don't want their words changed are acting like prima donnas.

--You'll be glad to learn that the musical Spring Awakening plays a prominent role in early episodes of the new Beverly Hills, 90210 spinoff.

But will they give Jonathan Franzen equal time?
