one month passes...
two weeks pass...
four months pass...

The '73 film of The Iceman Cometh is well worth seeing.

And the Denzel Washington-starring Broadway revival about to open has some wow casting: David Morse as Larry Slade and Colm Meaney as Harry Hope. (brilliantly played in aforementioned film by Robert Ryan and Fredric March)

Edmund in LDJIN is kind of a pain. (I came to this conclusion after seeing my third production last night, plus reading it and seeing the film.)

two years pass...

im starting vol 1 of the two volume bio by louis sheaffer, v good so far this volume won the pulitzer (seemingly 6 yrs after its publication? idgi)

really like this newspaper excerpt, not by o'neill but painting the picture of new london:

Few places could have celebrated the Fourth of July with more enthusiasm than the town on the Thames, as a story in the New London Telegraph on July 4, 1902, suggests: "Well, it is here: the Glorious Fourth, with its powder smell, its din, its litter of fireworks rubbish, its ecstatic small boy and his headachey, worried parents; its burned fingers, its excursions, its baseball fetes and its sleepy eyes: its jags, its tin horns and its million and one detonations of greater or less degree; it is here to be suffered or enjoyed, according to temperament and years; to harass horses and make glad the street car conductors; to put dollars into the pockets of the purveyors of fun and noise and to keep the doctors busy; to fill the air with the smell of brimstone and the stomach of the small kid with soda water."

also of interest (to me only perhaps), his dad's press agent's name was A. Toxen Worm
