Favorite playwrights: Chekhov, Chekhov, Chekhov, Tom Stoppard, among lots of others, too numerous to name. Thought ART was great. Adored Dirty Blond and Copenhagen. As to books, I read everything. Fiction, lots of non—fiction, historical novels, mysteries — I like the ones with humor that are set in quaint English villages where everyone drinks a lot of tea and pops in and out of pubs.
