wow. sounds like a great show. I agree with you on the brechtian conceit rarely, if ever, being realized.


Nuclear Wessels! I grew up in Alameda and was living there when Star Trek IV came out. We were beside ourselves to have our town mentioned. And looking at it now, the time travel aspect is so much more vivid; the NAS shut down under Clinton and the nuclear wessels are gone (though some nuclear waste remains). That and the yellow pages.


Cool! Brecht was a complex cat, and it's sometimes wise not to take his edicts too seriously – he didn't. One of the best stage productions I've seen in my life (and that, uh, is saying something) was Simon McBurney's production of The Caucasian Chalk Circle at the National Theatre in London and starring Juliet Stevenson. (McBurney played Azdak.) Rarely have I seen such mastery of the medium. Guy knows his stuff.
