For Stritchay in Endgame: All the way to Brooklyn with little ado
Kari and I traveled all the way to BAM to see Elaine Stritch in Endgame. She was in it only briefly and I would have been more disappointed if the rest of the cast - Max Casella, Alvin Epstine and John Turturro - had not been so brilliant. At least they seemed brilliant although I had no idea what the hell they were talking about. I found myself laughing at delivery rather than meaning. The best part was taking a cab back that only cost $23 plus tip - I feared that it was going to cost over $100. Whew, I survived in more than one way. I think I'm glad I saw a Beckett play. It's sure as hell better than Pinter's The Homecoming even if I understood it a million times less.
