The Late Christopher Bean

Thursday, December 03, 2009

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.

I saw the play at the Kenndy Center in 1981. We had dinner before the play in the restaurant there at the next table from Pat Hingle. We really enjoyed the play.

I'm staring at a poster for The Late Christopher Bean starring Jean Stapleton and Pat Hingle which was done at the Kennedy Center in the '80's. It was supposed to go to Broadway but somehow never made it...
