As the sound mixer for the 1993 production at Lincoln Center, I found myself discovering new subtleties and nuances in the dialog almost every performance. It was by far the most cerebrally enjoyable and memorable show I've worked.

It was very disappointing years ago when Sir Tom Stoppard's "Indian Ink" played in San Francisco, but never made it to Broadway.

Any hope of it coming here in the future?
