Review: Mikhail Baryshnikov in 'Beckett Shorts'

Full story: Newsday

When we think of Mikhail Baryshnikov, we picture the body - the compact, quick, magnificently expressive physicality that defined so much of the best modern ballet in the last quarter of the 20th century.

I was happy to see this is in production. A number of years ago Joe Dunne and his wife ran the A.C.T. American Contemporary Theater in Buffalo, NY and from what I recall he was perhaps a friend of Beckett's, and put on some avante guard theater there. At the time Eric Bentley, formerly of the Columbia University theater department, who was one of the first to translate Bertolt Brecht I last see was staging a production at the Bouwerie Theatre in 1999. Nancy Reagan would probably would have liked to attend I recall she saw Baryshnikov in Kafka's "Metamorphosis" was it? Interestingly overlooked perhaps it the connection between Brecht and Klabund Dichtungen Aus Dem Osten: "Das Kirschblutenfest" and "Die Geisha O - Sen"
