Falling in Love Again With ‘All About Eve’

“My native habitat is the Theater — in it, I toil not, neither do I spin. I am a critic and commentator. I am essential to the Theater — as ants are to a picnic, as the boll weevil to a cotton field.” - Addison DeWitt

The magical kingdom of Broadway is shuttered, but our critic returned to it — or rather a version of it that opened his eyes, Bette Davis wide, to New York theater.

Brian Dennehy, Tony Award-Winning Actor, Dies at 81

Rest in peace, Brian Dennehy

“He was a towering, fearless actor taking on the greatest dramatic roles of the 20th century,” Robert Falls, artistic director of the Goodman Theater in Chicago, where Mr. Dennehy did some of his finest work, said in a phone interview. “They were mountains that had to be climbed, and he had no problem throwing himself into climbing them.”

A versatile star, he had scores of television and film credits and made a searing impression on Broadway in “Death of a Salesman.”
