Masks of comedy and tragedy

Charles Isherwood on the death last Saturday of a fellow theater critic—

"...as it happened, I heard about his death just as I was entering the Lunt-Fontanne to see 'The Addams Family.' For a second time. By myself.

Now, there are happier ways to spend a Saturday night than attending a show you didn’t particularly like for the second time, by yourself. (Long story.) But then there’s no happy way to spend the night a friend dies."

For what it's worth—  night thoughts from this journal, Saturday night to Sunday morning—
