"Just go see a play"

This morning, Orange County Register theatre critic Paul Hodgins noted the passing of actor Robert Prosky. A few years ago, I had a lovely conversation with him, trying to persuade him to accept a role in a play I was directing at the Laguna Playhouse. At that time, he said he was begging off theatrical roles that would take him far from his D.C. home. In the obituary published by the Associated Press this morning, Prosky's son Stefan urges that, in lieu of flowers, "just go see a play." If you enjoyed Prosky's work, what better way could there be to honor his memory?

Until next time...
