By spying on George Hunka’s performance calendar, I see a production of Hedda Gabler is coming to Brooklyn all the way from Sydney, Australia. The production carries with it the star power of Cate Blanchett and Hugo Weaving.
Wait a minute, the last time we saw that pair was in Lord of the Rings! That’s a long way from Ibsen.
I’m really upset that BAM chose to stage this instead of my homoerotic stage adaptation of Lord of the Rings, titled Brokeback Mount Doom.
Don’t tell the elf!
