Director Jenn Thompson and actress Mary Bacon discuss the "The Late Christopher Bean," a comedy rarely seen in New York since its Broadway premiere in 1932. It tells the story of a country doctor who learns that the paintings a poor former tenant gave him instead of rent are suddenly valuable and sought after by a New York art collector. "The Late Christopher Bean" is playing at the Beckett Theater, 410 West 42nd Street, through December 12.
