Influences: Edward Albee


Early on, you seemed to like theater by artists in other forms. Cummings, Auden, Picasso.
These people were not basically playwrights, but they were writing interesting experimental work. And anything that can broaden your experience is wonderful. I was so happy about two months ago to see a play called Spirit, by the same British group that had done Shockheaded Peter. It did things only theater can do. I get so tired of he-said-she-said.

That’s funny coming from the creator of George and Martha.
But I get tired of it, still.
