Holiday Cheer

The Boston run of David Hare's Stuff Happens has added a very timely line. It begs the question, though: Will Hare have to keep tweaking this play as long as he's alive and it's done? At what point can he lock it? I'm among those who preferred the L.A. version to the NY version, mainly because I thought Hare's tweaks in the interim had weakened it (though the cast here was in some key ways sharper). Or maybe reality had gotten less dramatic?

Hey Rob--

One interesting side point that I've been thinking about for awhile now.. why does a script ever have to be locked?
