Daily Dose

From Mary McCarthy's Theatre Chronicles 1937 - 1962


"Custom, it must be admitted, has done something to stale As You Like It and A Midsummer Night's Dream and Macbeth and Hamlet for us, so that we can hardly see these plays for the dust of old productions they have gathered, like costumes in a theatrical warehouse."

From The Little Gate, February 1954
