Sigh. I don't usually read Terry Teachout, but one note in a recent post of his caught my eye. Like most of his blog (like most of most blogs), it was largely about himself - this one detailed cultural events that occurred the year he was born, 1956.
The line that caught my eye read:
My Fair Lady, Leonard Bernstein's Candide, Eugene O'Neill's Long Day's Journey into Night, and Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot opened on Broadway.
In a word - ouch.
My Fair Lady, Candide, Long Day's Journey into Night, and Waiting for Godot. All in one season, in 1956.
Contrast and compare to the offerings of the 2011 Broadway season. Discuss.
