Regrets ‘06

Posted by on January 5 at 10:45 AM

Neil Simon: Born July 4, 1927 in the Bronx. Still alive.
Eugene O’Neill: Born October 16, 1888 in New York City. Totally dead.

In the print edition of this invented interview with David Esbjornson, I confused the two. I wrote that the Rep scuttled a Eugene O’Neill premiere for an overproduced Noel Coward play.

Of course, the Rep couldn’t have produced a new O’Neill play (or it would be front-page news) because Eugene O’Neill has been dead for fifty goddamn years.

Neil, O’Neill. O’Neill, Neil. I regret my imbecility.

You regret Neil Simon is still alive?

No more than I regret Eugene O'Neill is still dead.
