David Blau is a writer on the downslope of virility. Leena
is a graduate student ready to challenge his easy definitions. This play was
inspired by Josef von Sternberg’s film The Blue Angel. Although it
departs radically from the original story, what Eric Bogosian preserves is the
sexual tempest caused by the collision of an independent woman and a man who’s
very secure in a man’s world.
This play is only available in the print edition of the Winter 2003
