Congratulations to Tracy Letts, playwright of August: Osage County, for his well-deserved Pulitzer Prize. I expect my niece and the rest of the cast will be doing the happy dance when they prepare for the show tonight. I can only imagine this will extend the show and make a London premier more likely. Next stop: the Tonies.
And mega kudos for those talented people on the fifth floor of the Washington Post building (where I hung out for about five years) for their six Pulitzer Prizes. I read the Post every day, thanks to the wonders of on-line publication, and I still think it's the best newspaper in America (sorry NY Times, which I also read every day.)
And how about that Bob Dylan? Good thing there are liner notes so you can find out what he's singing.
