Pulitzer Prize Winners Announced

And August: Osage County wins the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

Adam? Refresh my memory. Don't you owe me, like, money or a quiet romantic evening in a back alley or something?

Somehow, I recall that you do.

Annoyed with welshers,

Thanks for reminding me. Just went across the street (south st. seaport), and in less than 20 minutes got 12th row center tickets for tonight - $52!... for this week's pulitzer winner on broadway!!! Please send complaints about theater costing too much to me - it's not even hard to come by. "brilliant op-ed" last week? I think not.

So you're seeing it tonight? Very cool! I got slightly cheaper tickets ($35) for the nosebleed seats, but still loved it. Lemme know what you think.

way to go with the $35 tickets! so much for overpriced nyc theater.

I thought it was a terrific piece. A real learning opportunity for young playwrights in terms of structure and technique variations. thought it had a short coming about 10 or 15 minutes before the end, but i'm sure anything can be picked apart.

Sure, it's no Morning Becomes Electra or Strange Interlude, which made me wonder whether it is even possible in today's market for really, really meaty (new) literture to have the popular appeal necessary to ever make it to Bway. Those days just may be gone forever.

It really is quite something, isn't it?

Again, to me, it seemed almost like a hybrid of an O'Neillian play (which, you're right, may be a form and style that seems to have died with the author) and a top-notch HBO miniseries.
