That single performance is burned into my emotional memory as the most memorable of a lifetime. Taylor's acting and Tennessee's writing have been the most lasting influences of my own study, teaching and work in the theatre.
I've seen most all the original Williams productions in New York; had the opportunity to direct several in both college and AEA professional regional theatres; read everything published (plus a few original drafts) but this biography by John Lahr is the definitive last word. A labor of love some twelve years in the making, it is extensively researched, beautifully written and clearly told. It clarifies and contradicts exaggerations and outright fabrications
already out there. The emphasis here is a detailed study of Tennessee himself via an insightful empathetic analysis of his characters--Amanda, Blanche,Stanley-you name them--in order for you to know, understand and appreciate the playwright himself, his tragedy,courage and determination as an artist. For anyone interested in humanism and understanding you will find no more definitive portrait of our greatest American writer than in the page-turning book by Mr Lahr. For your own sake, hie yourself to the nearest bookstore, or your computer, and order it. You're in for one hell of a great read.
