Strindberg's Miss Julie
Last night I saw an excellent production of Strindberg's Miss Julie at the Cherry Lane Theatre. I'd only read the play before, not seen it; it is much sexier and much funnier than I'd thought. I was especially impressed with Michael Aronov, who was ridiculously good as Jean. My only quibble: why did they bother with the whole contemporary-Middle-East setting?
