What's your favorite play or playwright?--Al

-- Al Schroeder (al.schroeder@nashville.com), March 11, 2000


I absolutely adore the play "I Am A Camera" by Van Druten. Later on it was turned into "Cabaret" but the original play was a million times better. I got to play the lead, Sally Bowles, which is the character that Liz Minelli played in "Cabaret", but again... the way Sally is developed in the original is much better and i was eternally grateful that i played my part before letting myself watch the video because i hated the way Minelli portrayed "my" character.

Good question Al!

Liz Minelli. Good Lord.

Of course, i *meant* Liza. I should know that i can't type on only one cup of coffee.

I live for Broadway and the theatre. It will be hard for me to choose one favorite here. I like Caberet the most out of all the plays that I have seen on Broadway. I also like Rent and Ragtime.

Othello by Shakespeare. For some reason, I can just really slip into the hearts and minds of those characters. Perhaps it was my years with a dominating father, then 3 years of a dominating love relationship. I would have given my right arm to see the play when Patrick Steward played Othello....
