"Hemingway and Gellhorn"

Thursday, May 24, 2012

Director Philip Kaufman talks about his film “Hemingway and Gellhorn.” It recounts the passionate love affair and tumultuous marriage of Ernest Hemingway and the war correspondent Martha Gellhorn, who were one of the first celebrity “power couples.” As witnesses to history, they covered all the great conflicts of their time, but they couldn’t survive was the war between themselves. “Hemingway and Gellhorn” airs Monday, May 28, on HBO.

The Mint Theater is producing the first ever revival of "Love Goes to Press," by Martha Gellhorn and Virginia Cowle. The play is a sharp-tongued comedy about women war correspondents that debuted on Broadway in 1947. "Love Goes to Press" runs from May 26 to July 22 at the Mint Theater.

What are the names of the dancers that came back stage during their love scene. I am mostly concerned with the name of the black woman. She was sexy and I wonder if she is in anything else.
