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.
