Eighty years ago tomorrow in Washington DC, a woman gave birth to a baby boy named Edward. He was adopted by a couple from Westchester named Albee, and went on to become the greatest living English language playwright. Mr. Albee has also helped hundreds of artists (the Hound included) through his decades of work with his Foundation and the William Flanagan Center for Creative Persons. Far from retired, he is directing “The American Dream” and “The Sandbox” at the Cherry Lane Theatre, which open March 25th. Which I think is a pretty good birthday present in itself.
