My Life in the Theater: TAKING LEAVE
We saw TAKING LEAVE by Nagle Jackson at the Performance Network in Ann Arbor in 2001. It is a comic treatment of KING LEAR. In this production, he has dementia--maybe one of the first plays we saw about Alzheimers. I remember it as a very fine evening. Of course, the real Lear often seems to be suffering from this sort of break too.
