Enter "Exit"

Times are tough, so why not bring Ionesco to Broadway? Specifically, a new production of his enigmatic Exit the King, starring Geoffrey Rush and Susan Sarandon, to open in March. Well, why not? I still recall with a mix of fondness and bewilderment a 1999 production at the Actors Gang starring John Reilly and Molly Bryant, the latter bundling away her dotty monarch, and knitting up the evening, with a few beautiful, wordless moments. I spoke with Reilly about it then.
