Thank you, Richard! Anyone knowing of other such events, PLEASE post them here! I have been feeling very badly, fearing that since Ray passed away and his house was destroyed, his memory is being consigned to the scrap heap of history, and if people will do this to the greatest writer in the history of written language, no literature or even the memory of it is safe. (The ending of Fahrenheit 451 is beautiful, but in all honesty, who has even correctly memorized a single paragraph from ANY book? I have read Ray's works multiple times and I still have to check quotes for accuracy!) We are well on our way to being an ignorant, illiterate, or at least ill-informed, society.

The whole play?! Just like that wonderful six month run back in '08?! If so, I might just have to bend my rule and venture into the city on a weekday evening.
