Happy Day(s)

Today is Samuel Beckett's 100th birthday. Let's drink a little Hennessey to S.B. And if you feel like reading, check out this New York Sun article on Beckett's centennial. As the article points out, the actual day of Beckett's birth "was, fittingly enough, both Friday the 13th and Good Friday." My dream is to see a first-rate performance of a Samuel Beckett play, not some cheap-o, well-meaning, Off-off-off Broadway show that can't reach the master's meaning. My favorite S.B. line: "I can't go on, I must go on, I'll go on."
