Itamar Moses

I like Itamar Moses. I thought his Authorial Intent was the best part of McCarter Theatre’s last Short Play Festival. But what’s this phrase doing in the marketing materials?

In Outrage, Moses “uses his Yale University degree to deftly move between the present and three other time periods…”

Stay tuned next week as Mike Mariano uses his TCNJ degree to deftly line a birdcage!

    Not to mention that Itamar went to NYU. Which is maybe not that much more egalitarian than Yale, but hell, I went to Montclair, which is even humbler than TCNJ (to put it kindly) and I went there too. I’ll be in debt for the rest of my life but I ain’t no Skull & Bones member.

    And here I thought I was the only TCNJ graduate to emerge into a professional playwrighting career (considering the um, ‘modest’ assortment of playwrighting classes offered)…

    And now I teach there.

    Hmmm.

  3. Mike Mariano says:

    A willing returnee to Trenton State? Who would do such a thing? (No Comment.) At least there’s a paycheck involved. I hope.

    During my TCNJ days the playwriting class (yes, “class” singular) was offered once every five years—AKA not once while I was a student. The late Don Evans was the professor. The only playwriting I did that overlapped with my studies was a Writer’s Workshop class with Lincoln Konkle. I hope, Sheila, that you are doing something to improve the situation.

    Unless they’re crushing your soul!

    I think Itamar did go to Yale. How else could he have been a columnist for the Yale Daily News? They still have some of his old columns — they’re fantastic — archived. See for yourself: http://www.yaledailynews.com/opinion/column.asp?fname=Itamar&lname=Moses .
