S. 2 EP. 14 THE CURSE OF THE STARVING CLASS
This week, we’re discussing a piece of extraordinary theater Douglas Kennedy and I had recently viewed, Sam Shepard’s American classic “The Curse of The Starving Class”. Not only is the “Starving Class” one of Shepard’s fantastic additions to his ‘family’ trilogy – it was directed this spring by the brilliant Terry Kinney, and like some artistic kismet, was performed at the fantastic Signature Theater in Manhattan. I sat down with Kennedy to discuss this deliriously genius piece of modern theater.
