That Birney Feeling

I wasn't a great lover of the recent Soho Rep Vanya, as regular readers of this blog know, but I remain a fan of nearly everyone involved, including actor Reed Birney, whose lovely interview with Slant magazine I just caught. I was particularly touched by this closing observation:
This generation of playwrights and directors, Annie [Baker]'s generation, they seem to understand me better than my peer group does. I don't quite know why, but they appreciate me in a way that I never was before.
Another argument for sticking with it.
