Mr. Langella:

I am so very grateful for your exemplar:
method is of the moment, trial and error.
No cant. No heavy breathing.

Proving among other things that there is hope for New Jersey and those emanating from it.

I absolutely loved this production. Mr. Langella is a true theatrical gem, and it speaks highly of the play, that all the performances were equally balanced. I natter more on it here: http://heresheisboys.com/2011/10/16/man-and-boy-review/

Does the cast go back into rehearsals when it's known ahead of time that an understudy is going to be in the play, so the other actors have a chance to see what kinds of adjustments they'll need to make?

I'm enjoying this interview--I saw Mr. Langella in "Dracula" years ago.
